Columbian College offers funding assistance to qualified students who have graduated from an eligible minority-serving institution (MSI). The MSI Award provides an application fee waiver and a tuition award of at least 40 percent to qualified students who are applying to a Columbian College graduate program.
To qualify, an applicant must:
- be admitted to a Columbian College master's degree, graduate certificate program or PsyD program;
- expect to receive an undergraduate degree from an eligible MSI or already hold such a degree, awarded no earlier than 2010; and
- be enrolled in a Columbian College graduate program to receive the tuition benefit, renewable for the normal duration of the degree.
All applicants from eligible MSI are eligible regardless of race, ethnicity, or national origin.
The MSI Award is for traditional fall and spring semesters only unless the program requires summer registration. Master's students must be enrolled full-time to receive the award; graduate certificate awardees may be enrolled part-time.
