RIT Graduate Scholarships are awarded by academic programs in recognition of students’ records of academic excellence. The amount of the award varies by student and department. Scholarships do not include a stipend. These awards carry with them the expectation that students will maintain a minimum academic standard (3.0 cumulative grade point average) and make satisfactory progress toward their degrees.
Students who qualify for a full RIT tuition waiver or full reimbursement from an employer or an outside agency are not eligible for an RIT Graduate Scholarship.
Athletic scholarships at RIT are available only for men's and women’s ice hockey.
Under NCAA rules, athletic scholarships are strictly prohibited for Division III athletes; additionally, athletic involvement must not be a consideration for merit scholarships or need-based financial aid.
Our unique Cooperative Education Program (Co-Op) not only complements your academics, but has financial benefits. This full-time, major-specific, paid work experience provides early career exposure that can help you stand out and earn more.
