Incoming Master's and Specialist Degree Students

Awards for incoming students

The ILS department actively seeks solutions to provide financial support for incoming master’s degree students and Specialist in Library and Information Science students.

Merit-based scholarships

If you are an incoming Master’s degree student or incoming Specialist in Library and Information Science student, you will be considered for a variety of merit-based scholarship resources managed by the department.

These packages generally include fee remissions or one-time awards.

No additional ILS financial aid application form is needed to be considered for these resources.

You’ll be notified of ILS financial aid decisions by the end of April. ILS is a part of the Council of Graduate Schools.

By agreement with this council, "students are under no obligation to respond to offers of financial support prior to April 15." This agreement is to help you know your options, so that you can make the best decision.
