The Catholic University of America offers several forms of financial assistance to qualified students. Eight out of every 10 full-time students at Catholic University receive some level of financial aid, based on both need and academic potential. 

Research and Student-Teaching Scholarships

Qualified students are eligible to receive semester-long research and teaching assistantships (usually involving 10 hours/week of work). These appointments are awarded on a competitive and merit basis. Future students need to apply during the admission process whereas students in the program may approach the faculty directly.
