Financial Support

If you’ve made the decision to go to graduate school, there are multiple ways you can get help paying for it.

As a graduate student at IU, you’ll have a variety of financial support options to choose from and pursue. Our graduate students find support through fellowships and grants, student academic appointments (SAAs), and student loans. Contact your department for available SAA appointments.
