Student financial assistance can come in many forms, though most assistance at the graduate/professional level should be expected to be in the form of student loans.
- Grants & Scholarships - "Free money" that isn't required to be repaid. These funds are awarded based on financial need, merit, academics, or some combination of these criteria.
- Student Loans - Money that is borrowed from some source that must be repaid over time, typically with interest.
- Work - Earnings for performing some type of service to an organization.
Each of these types of assistance can come from a variety of sources. In general, your application for financial assistance at Rush will be the single application required for all of these programs.
