Apply for graduate scholarships
Although unpopular belief, there are actually many scholarships and fellowships offered by various non profits, corporate and minority organizations that award on merit and some requirements for acceptance. In most cases these are awarded through application process, and selected few are chosen. These are considered the best case scenario for prospective students because these aids do not have to be repaid in most cases. However, the scholarship amounts are awarded by applications that come with some requirements and have hard deadlines so be sure to submit on time.
