Graduate Tuition Scholarships (GTS) are non-need-based awards that cover any portion of the base graduate student tuition for University of Arizona main campus classes. The Scholarship excludes coverage of mandatory registration fees, any additional tuition charged by the individual program or tuition assessed through the Outreach College. The Scholarships may offset any portion of the base tuition that the Qualified Tuition Reduction (QTR) does not cover. The GTS award will apply after the QTR goes into effect.


To be eligible for consideration of an award, a student must:

  • Be a degree seeking domestic or international graduate student,
  • Be admitted to a graduate degree granting academic unit,
  • Be enrolled full time according to current academic policy, and
  • Have an admitting or cumulative graduate GPA of 3.0 or higher and be in good academic standing.
