Although, as graduate students, EVMS students are not eligible for the federal Pell grant, there are some resources for need-based grants for state residents. There are also some institutional scholarships available. Students in the MLAS program are eligible for the Administrative Resource Council Scholarship, one of the Institutional Scholarships for the School of Health Professions.
Students are urged to continue searching for scholarships and grants from outside resources using reputable search engines like Fast Web. Other scholarship sources include the Military Scholarship and the National Health Service Corps Scholarship programs. In exchange for service commitment, these scholarship programs pay tuition and fees, plus a monthly stipend.
