Financial Aid

The Bush School prides itself on keeping its academic programs affordable. Through generous donations and state and university funding, we have created an environment of academic excellence comparable to schools that cost much more. We aim to prepare students for careers in public service without burdening them with expensive school loans and debt.

Financial assistance at the Bush School comes in many forms. The centerpiece of our funding is Bush School Scholarships, which support the majority of our students. We also grant non-resident tuition waivers to our out-of-state students, and we work with outside funding to grant competitive, nomination-based fellowships. The Bush School also offers about 20 graduate assistantships (GAs) per degree to second-year students, granted via merit and skill sets.

At the University level, financial loans are offered through the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students are encouraged to fill out the form before or during the application process to see what you qualify for.

TAMU’s Scholarships & Financial Aid can help you in that process. Student employment and grants may also available on the above website, including a need-based, Texas resident option called the Texas Aggie Graduate Grant. Veterans benefits are also accepted.

International Students may qualify for various programs based on visa status and qualifications. Visit TAMU’s TAMU’s Scholarships & Financial Aid website above and complete the International Student Financial Aid Application (ISFAA).

Whichever way you go, presenting strengths and meeting deadlines is essential when competing for financial assistance.
