» Attallah College Fellowships and Grant Awards

The majority of Attallah College graduate students receive tuition fellowships, which are often underwritten by fellowships and scholarships funded by our generous donors. In order to receive full consideration for graduate fellowships and assistantships at the time of admission, all application materials must be received by your graduate program's priority deadline.

Chapman undergraduate students who apply by the application deadline are automatically considered for merit aid. Visit the Office of Admission for more information about undergraduate Institutional Awards and Financial Aid.

Graduate Student Scholarly and Creative Activity Grants are also offered through Chapman's Vice Provost for Graduate Education.
