Financial Aid

MHIHIM students can apply for various forms of financial aid to help cover their educational costs, including federal financial aid, scholarships and loans. For more information, see the Office of Student Financial Aid's fee-based programs page, as well as federal financial aid information from the Department of Health Services. Fee-based students are not eligible for tuition exemptions or university grants.

The Graduate Funding Information Service assists UW graduate students in their search for funding opportunities outside the University of Washington. GFIS hosts workshops, posts funding announcements and meets one-on-one with students.

Some employers will cover all or part of the cost of a professional education. Check with your employer to see if such a program is available.
