Scholarship selection results will be emailed in May 2015. Scholarships are available for use beginning Fall 2015; they may only be used to defray the cost of tuition for Marywood courses.

Students awarded graduate assistantships for the 2015-2016 academic year who accept those positions are not eligible to receive scholarship awards as well.

Marywood University will not award scholarships to students in the dissertation phase of the doctoral program or allow portions of previously awarded scholarships to defray the cost of dissertation credits due to the direct costs incurred by the University in the provision of mentorship and supervision of the disseration process for each doctoral student.

Neither scholarship nor assistantship awards are renewed automatically each year. It is the responsibility of the student to reapply each academic year.

If you have questions about any of the graduate scholarship and assistantship programs at Marywood University please contact:
