Financial aid is funding provided by various agencies to help students meet the costs of attending graduate school. Student loans are considered financial aid because of the special interest rates, with some being subsidized by the federal government. Repayment of most student loans does not begin until after graduation.
Grants and scholarships are often called “gift aid” because they monies that do not have to be repaid. Grants are often need-based, and can come from the federal government, the state of Kansas, the university and other organizations.
Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTA) and Graduate Research Assistants (GRA) serve to fill a vital role in KU’s graduate research agenda. As a GTA or GRA, you are eligible for benefits, including tuition and health insurance benefits.
