Our program offers no funding at this time. Especially in comparison with other Graduate Analytics programs, our programs are an exceptional value.
One scholarship currently exists for enrolled students, which is in the health specialization cluster, and is awarded during the 2nd semester. On-campus job opportunities for existing students may be found on the Wildcat Careers website.
Funding for international students is limited at UNH. The Office of International Students & Scholars is a great resource for international students. This office supports applicants/students by assisting with the Estimate of Annual Expenses.
