Phoenix Scholar Award

The Phoenix Scholar Awards provide a discounted tuition rate to qualified non-resident graduate students who meet the academic and residency criteria. This is not “financial aid” nor is it a “scholarship” in the traditional sense. Instead, it is a lower tuition rate offered to qualifying graduate students. Click here to learn more about these awards for out-of-state and international students.

All of our innovative graduate programs are problem-focused and interdisciplinary, combining theory with practical application. Every graduate student receives comprehensive academic advising. Our faculty are highly qualified, dedicated, and caring. We encourage you to explore our website and contact us with any questions! Below is a list of our programs, linked to the individual program websites.
