Financial Resources

The cost of attending graduate school seems to be getting higher and higher. Thankfully, we can help you find ways to make your graduate experience more affordable. Fresno State offers several different financial opportunities through our division and other departments across campus. These range from financial aid to scholarships, assistantships, teaching associateships, and more. However, they are competitive, which is why it is very important to know your deadlines and apply early.
