Financial Aid:

Many students may qualify for financial aid in the form of student loans. UVA Student Financial Services awards only federal aid to graduate students. This includes Direct Unsubsidized Loans, Direct Graduate PLUS Loans (if interest is indicated on the application) and Federal Work Study.

Need-based fellowships:

Some students may also qualify for need-based fellowships. To qualify students must indicate they would like to be considered for need-based fellowships on their application (specific question on the application), and apply for FAFSA.
