Financial Aid and Scholarships

Financial Aid Programs

At Gallaudet University, we recognize the importance of a quality education and are dedicated to helping you achieve your goal of earning a college degree.  In addition to federal financial aid programs, such as the Pell Grant, Work-Study and Direct Loans, scholarships can help you pay for your education. Each aid program is unique and has different eligibility requirements.

Scholarships: Financial assistance that does not have to be repaid and usually is awarded on the basis of academic merit.

Federal Work-Study: Federal funds promoting part-time employment, on or off-campus, for students who demonstrate financial need.

Grants: Financial assistance, based on need, that does not have to be repaid.

Loans: Financial aid that will need to be repaid, with interest, after you graduate or leave college.
