Financial Aid

There are several types of federal financial aid available to graduate students. Please visit our student financial services website to learn more.

Assistantships, Internships, Fellowships, and Employment

Belmont University’s department of English offers internships, fellowships, and part-time employment to help fund the cost of graduate school while gaining valuable career enrichment experience. Opportunities include tutoring positions and summer teaching associateships at the writing center, part-time employment at the library, a limited number of competitive on-campus graduate fellowships through the Office of Student Organization and Activities, and a paid internship at a local independent elementary school. Application deadlines vary, but most applications are due in early Spring. Please contact the director of graduate studies for more information.


We offer small scholarships to full-time students on a competitive basis each semester. In addition, we also offer limited reimbursement for research and conference travel.

There are also several sources of external scholarships available, such as these scholarships offered by West End United Methodist Church for those who are in or pursuing careers in teaching. For more on external scholarships, visit Belmont’s Engish Graduate scholarship website.
