Scholarships are available to both part-time and full-time graduate students. These are awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need and are handled by the Program Director. These scholarships are distinctly different than the federal loans available to graduate students. Information and assistance in securing student loans can be obtained from the Office of Student Financial Services at (516) 463-8000.
These are available in departments throughout Hofstra University. Compensation is often through tuition remission and a cash stipend depending upon the availability within a department. Students work approximately 25 hours per week. On-campus part-time positions that pay only an hourly rate are also available throughout the campus. These students usually work in academic departments for up to 12 hours per week. All students may apply for positions through the Office of Student Employment and the office that is advertising the open position.

Federal Financial Aid
Eligibility for these programs is determined by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The Perkins Loans, Military Science, United States Bureau of Indian Affairs Aid to Native Americans, NYS Tuition Assistance, and Stafford Loan awards are just a few examples of the aid available.
Limited funding is available to a select number of students through grants from the Rehabilitation Service Administration, U.S. Department of Education. It helps to defray student tuition costs for those who attend usually on a full-time basis. For funding requirements and eligibility, or for more information about the program, please contact Dr. Jamie Mitus. Applicants of minority background and/or with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
