For more information, visit the fee-based programs page of the Office of Student Financial Aid website. If contacting the Office of Student Financial Aid, it’s helpful to share that you’re inquiring about a fee-based program.

Other Sources of Funding

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.
