The cost of getting a master’s or doctoral degree may seem daunting. Here’s the good news: graduate degrees can be more affordable than you might think. With determination and a little knowledge, you may be able to pursue the career of your dreams without acquiring an overwhelming load of debt.
Fellowships, scholarships, awards and grants are not loans and you will not have to repay them. They can be “merit-based” for outstanding student performance and/or “needs-based” for those otherwise unable to afford an education.
In addition to graduate fellowships and grants at ASU, there are thousands of national, state and private organization resources to search, including awards for teachers, those seeking a career in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) fields, military and their family members, minorities and women who are underrepresented in their fields, and many more.

Career services at ASU offers valuable resources and advice, including guides, advising, events and workshops, job search and more.
If grants, scholarships, savings, student jobs and family assistance do not cover the costs of attending college, you might consider loans. If so, don’t hesitate to seek counseling from the main ASU Student Financial Aid Office. This office contains valuable tools and advice, such as cost calculators, loan options, money management tips, and frequently asked questions.
