The Toulouse Graduate School offers a variety of fellowships, scholarships, grants and awards. These can range from $500 a semester to $34,000 a year, including health benefits. Some academic departments offer nationally competitive scholarships as well as travel grants and employment stipends.
Additionally, any UNT scholarships of $1,000 or more per academic year may include an out-of-state tuition waiver, when meeting state requirements.
Requirements for continued funding of individual scholarships are outlined in the scholarship offer letters, or read more about the requirements and the scholarship appeal process. Failure to comply with these requirements can result in a loss of scholarship funding and the non-resident tuition waiver that is associated with the scholarship (if applicable).
Students nearing completion of their degree program or are otherwise unable to register for the minimum number of graduate credit hours required should complete the Course Load Exception Request Form prior to the first class day of the semester.
Students with other extenuating circumstances that prohibit them from meeting all other stated requirements may file an appeal with the graduate school.
Applicants and students who are awarded a Toulouse Graduate School competitive scholarship and are classified as non-resident/out-of-state may receive in conjunction with the scholarship a "competitive scholarship waiver." This waiver allows a student to pay tuition at the resident/in-state rate. The state of Texas strictly limits how many competitive scholarship waivers may be offered, and the awarding of such waivers is at the sole discretion of the University. Not all of the scholarships we offer will qualify, please read the information for each award carefully.
After residing in the state for 12 consecutive months, a student may apply for reclassification as a resident for tuition purposes provided unequivocal proof of establishment of domicile in Texas. For more information on reclassification, as well as documentation required, please visit the Registrar's Office website.
The UNT International Office recommends international students to apply for scholarships with their departments and through the General Scholarship Application.
