Seattle University offers a limited number of scholarships to graduate students. These scholarships are provided in recognition of the students ability to enhance Seattle Universitys  educational community. Scholarship renewal is based upon scholarship specifics, satisfactory academic progress and, in some cases, continued need.

All scholarships are financial resources and must be coordinated with other types of financial aid. Students must notify the Student Financial Services Office of any scholarships received that do not appear on their award letters. Students must also notify the Student Financial Services Office if an outside scholarship is renewable so it can be automatically included in subsequent award years.
