Scholarships and Assistantships

Each year, we award several highly qualified students a coveted Graduate Student Assistantship, in addition to a wide range of merit-based scholarships. 

New and continuing students should familiarize themselves with the scholarships available through Touro University and the Graduate School of Business. We offer awards ranging from $500 to $1,000 per semester.

Deadlines and amounts vary for each scholarship, so be sure to read the fine print and submit your application on time.

How to Apply

For scholarship consideration, submit the application along with a required essay and recent resumé.

The Scholarship Committee will notify you of their decisions before the start of each semester. Scholarships are not automatically renewed, so you must apply each semester. Scholarships are granted for the following semester: students may receive only one scholarship per semester.
