The Office of Financial Aid is committed to helping Winthrop students find appropriate ways to finance their education. To be considered for any of the aforementioned scholarships, a student must be in good academic-standing and meet any minimum GPA requirements that the deed of gift may specify. 

Other Forms of Financial Assistance
Fully-admitted and provisionally admitted degree-seeking applicants may be considered for a Graduate Assistant or Associate position as well as a variety of other scholarships. Fully-admitted and provisionally-admitted degree-seeking students may also apply for the Children of Faculty and Staff Scholarship if their parent works for Winthrop University.

Applicants for graduate assistantships and associateships should demonstrate skills and/or experience in the area of expertise for which they will have responsibility. Applicants for Winthrop Graduate Scholarships should demonstrate ability or promise of academic excellence. Need of financial assistance may be considered for Winthrop Graduate Scholarships . Non-degree students are ineligible to receive financial awards
 
Graduate assistantships and associateships and Winthrop Graduate Scholarships are determined by each academic unit.

There are two separate financial award applications, one each for graduate assistantships and scholarships. Students must fill out the appropriate form based on the award for which they are applying. Applications can be downloaded from the Forms Online page of the Graduate School website. The graduate director for each college will coordinate the review process for financial awards and submit nominations to the Graduate Scholarship Committee for final review and endorsement.  The committee will submit the name of the award recipients to the Graduate School Office.  Award letters will be issued by the Graduate School in conjunction with the Office of Financial Aid.
 
The Graduate Directors will forward the Application of Graduate Assistantships and Winthrop Graduate Scholarships to the appropriate departments for consideration. Nominations for those awards will be submitted by the academic departments to The Graduate School Office.
