We encourage you to apply for private scholarships to help finance your education. We have compiled a list of scholarships that may be of interest to you.
This list of scholarships, though not exhaustive, is a great place to begin as you search for private funds for graduate school. We'll add new scholarships to this list as we learn of them. We encourage you to continue your own scholarship search to identify resources that may not be included here. Lesley University is not responsible for the actions or claims of any outside organization.
