Student Financial Aid

The financial aid budget is determined by the Office of Financial Aid (add link) in collaboration with the PA program. Because the PA program begins in the summer semester, the cost is spread over three FAFSA cycle years. (2023-2024, 2024-2025, and 2025-2026).                                                  

For more information regarding financial aid and to obtain financial aid forms, visit the Office of Student Financial Assistance. If you receive financial aid, please pay close attention to all instructions in the award letter. 

The GW PA program offers a limited number of need-based and merit based scholarships. These renewable scholarships require students to maintain a 3.0 GPA as well as good academic and professionalism standing.

In addition to university scholarships and grants, there are a number of other scholarships available through the Physician Assistant FoundationPA Veteran's Caucus, local state chapters of the AAPA and local and national philanthropic organizations.

The federally funded National Health Service Corps is a competitive scholarship program that also has generous loan repayment opportunities for health professionals who agree to serve in medically underserved primary care settings. If you are interested in programs such as these, we encourage you to research them to see if they may be applicable for you.
