The Clinton School awards financial aid in the form of merit-based scholarships. The amount awarded varies according to academic and experiential merit and the availability of funds. Scholarship money is intended to be used toward the tuition costs of the 36 credit hour MPS program. Scholarship awards will be determined upon acceptance into the MPS program.
In order to help pay for remaining tuition costs and living expenses, U.S. citizens and permanent residents may be eligible for need-based student loans and should complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. Interested students must complete a 2009-2010 FAFSA by the June 30, 2010 priority deadline in order to be eligible to receive federal loan funds. All need-based financial aid for Clinton School students is processed through the UA-Little Rock Financial Aid office. To submit a FAFSA form, please visit www.fafsa.ed.gov.
For students interested in pursuing a concurrent degree, please know that there are student financial aid officers available at each of the three concurrent campuses. International students and non-U.S citizens are eligible for Clinton School merit-scholarship consideration, but cannot apply for U.S. government loans through the FAFSA. There are some limited private loans that are available to international students who have a co-signer who is a U.S. citizen or permanent resident.
