Financial Aid & Scholarships

We encourage you to start exploring financial aid options as soon as you decide to apply to the MS in Technology Innovation program. U.S. students can apply for various forms of financial aid, including scholarships and loans. Because the MS in Technology Innovation is considered a fee-based rather than a state-funded program, students are not eligible for tuition exemptions. For more information about financial aid, visit the fee-based programs page of the Office of Student Financial Aid website. International students may be able to apply for government and industry scholarships available in their home countries.

There are a limited number of partial scholarships for applicants admitted to the MS in Technology Innovation program. All applicants will be considered, and any scholarships will be awarded at the time admissions decisions are made. While these scholarships may provide some financial support, they do not cover all program fees or any living expenses.

In recognition of the key role that community colleges play in higher education, GIX offers additional scholarships to students who had attended and graduated from a community college with an associate's or bachelor's degree.

All applicants are eligible to apply for the Technology Innovation Ambassador Fellowship. If selected, Ambassador Fellows commit approximately 40 hours over the duration of the program to support outreach efforts for GIX, sharing their student experiences with prospective and future Master of Science in Technology Innovation students. A diverse set of ambassador fellows from a variety of backgrounds and experiences is desired to be able to show the diverse nature of the MS in Technology Innovation cohorts. Applicants submit an additional 250-word statement to apply for the fellowship, with detailed instructions available in the program application.

The Graduate Funding Information Service (GFIS) assists University of Washington graduate students with their search for funding opportunities for graduate school-related expenses. GFIS representatives host workshops, post funding announcements and meet one-on-one with students.
