Tuition must be used towards payment of coursework and may not exceed the total tuition due. To claim the tuition award, AmeriCorps members must submit a copy of their Education Award letter and indication of his/her campus of study to the Office of Graduate Student Assistantships and Fellowships by the first day of classes in the first semester enrolled at GW.
Note* Matching funds can not be posted in the summer semester.
Some of our graduate programs offer tuition support through a funded project or a program specific fellowship. Please speak with your program advisor to determine if you are eligible for such funding.
