Grants and loans can be valuable resources for funding your graduate education. Explore options for funding and discover need-based aid options by visiting the Office of Student Financial Services website.

To apply for need-based aid, you will need to fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Once your aid package is determined, it will be posted to your MyAccess account. You may then review and make a decision about the funding available to you.

DSAN Military Scholarship

Our program is committed to supporting the education and professional growth of active-duty military students and awards a military scholarship each year.

Military Scholars

The DSAN Program offers one full-tuition scholarship (including mandatory fees) and one 50% tuition scholarship to active-duty military service members every year. This scholarship is open to ALL branches of the US Military.

Learn about our Scholarship Winners

Before applying for the Military Scholarship, students must first apply to the MS Data Science and Analytics program via the Graduate School application site. The deadline to apply for the scholarship is January 15. Scholarship winners will be notified no later than February 15.

Continuing Students

Each Fall, the Data Science & Analytics program grants merit-based scholarship awards to our returning students following a competitive award process. Returning Student Scholarship Awards are announced and presented during our August Welcome Event. Each scholarship award is the equivalent of the tuition for one, two, or three graduate classes.

A large group of students and the DSAN director stand smiling in front of a screen listing the names of winners.

The scholarship application asks students to demonstrate the skills and knowledge they learned in their first year by submitting a mini data visualization project that they must complete independently without any faculty assistance.

Every year in the late Spring, our program director will send the scholarship application announcement. The announcement includes detailed instructions on how to apply and the application deadline. The scholarship submissions are submitted anonymously, judged by a group of faculty, and awarded on a competitive basis.
