We do not use Master’s level students to teach in our College, therefore we do not offer teaching assistantships or fellowships.

Florida Bright Futures recipients who graduated with their Bachelor’s degree in 7 semesters/105 credits or less may be eligible to apply remaining Bright Futures funding to the first semester of a graduate program. Contact your undergraduate financial aid adviser for more information.

Florida Pre-Paid students, before cashing out a pre-paid account, contact your undergraduate financial aid adviser for more information about using remaining pre-paid funds for graduate tuition.

Federal Student Aid and Loans

Most students (U.S. Citizens/U.S. Residents) are eligible to receive federal loans. To apply for federal loans, you must complete the Federal Student Aid FAFSA Application.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any scholarships or assistantships available? Do I have to apply for them?

The MSM office offers no assistantships for teaching or research. We generally do have limited money available for small MSM scholarships. Once a student begins courses, a notification will be sent out to all students at the beginning of the term who are interested in applying for scholarship monies. There are a few Merit-based and a few Need-based awards and the typical award is between $1500 and $3000. Recommendations as well as the resume also play a very important part since selection is highly competitive.
