Graduate Admission

Rewarding academic achievement. Recognizing financial need. Opening new doors.

Whether you’re attending school part-time or full-time, Pace is committed to helping you work toward your degree with the least amount of financial burden. We offer scholarships, as well as teaching assistantships.

President’s and Dean’s Scholarship Awards

Available to: Full- and part-time matriculated students demonstrating exceptional scholastic ability. Full-time students awarded the scholarship must take a minimum of 9 credits per fall and spring semesters. Part-time students must take a minimum of 6 credits per fall and spring semester to be considered eligible. International students must take a minimum of 9 credits per fall and spring semester for eligibility.

Award amount: Awards range from $3,200 - $7,380 per academic year depending on college, program, and academic standing.

Application Process:  An application for the President's and Dean's scholarship is not required.  Your application for admission serves as your application for the scholarship.  Applicants are notified of their award in their acceptance packet.

Graduate Assistantships

Available to: Students who have shown academic accomplishment, skills, and related experience. 

Award amount: Both full- and part-time assistantships (in research and/or administrative positions) are available to qualified students. Assistantships carry the value of full or half tuition, as well as a stipend. Amounts awarded depend on whether the student is a full or partial assistant.

Length of award: Assistantships are given on a per-semester basis.

Due date: To be considered, students should file the Graduate Assistantship application, which is available in the application for admission. Assistantships are awarded by the academic department through which the student is admitted. Due to the limited number of positions available, assistantships are very competitive.

Endowed Scholarship Fund

Pace University’s endowed and restricted scholarships are very different from any of the other aid in your financial aid package. They are made possible through the generosity of Pace alumni and friends, as well as corporations and foundations. These benefactors have a strong belief in the importance of a Pace education for your future success.

There are a number of endowed/restricted scholarships available for Graduate students. Each one of them has specific criteria which may include financial need, academic achievement, co-curricular activities, and others. If you would like to apply for any of these special awards, and you are a current student, you can use our Application Portal. It is very important that you provide as much information as possible so that you are eligible for a greater number of scholarships.

Education is an important investment from which you will benefit over your entire lifetime. Pace is committed to being your partner in this investment and to working with you to achieve your goals.
