52 Scholarships for Graduate Students to Cash In On

*This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure for more info.

When graduate school is on the horizon, it’s time to start thinking about how you’re going to pay for it.

It’s always best to think ahead, especially when it comes to college.

One route to go is scholarships, specifically scholarships for graduate students.

What could be better than free money for school, right?

The nice thing is:

There are TONS of scholarships out there! Which can also be a drawback, because…

Even with boatloads of them out there, not all are graduate student eligible.


Because there are so many, it can be really time consuming to JUST sort through them all. There’s a lot of time spent before you even get the application process for each one.


To save from the headache of sifting the chaff from the wheat, I put together this big list of scholarships for graduate students.

Hopefully, this helps you win a nice lump of college cash or even a 100% tuition paid grad school experience!
