Graduate Student Scholarships

The Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships strives to provide quality service and financial assistance to our students. Financing a graduate education can be a daunting task. The information on this site will help you move through the process efficiently and make a plan that works for you.

The Citadel's scholarship program is designed to attract outstanding college graduates who want to further pursue their education, reward academic excellence, and help students who desire financial assistance to pay for their graduate education. The Citadel provides scholarship opportunities to students every year. 



The Citadel Graduate College Scholarship is to provide funds to support a Citadel Graduate College student. Each recipient should have demonstrated financial need based on the criteria being determined by Financial Aid and maintain the traditionally high standards of The Citadel: promoting strong ability, character, and dedication to the program.  Funds are limited.



The primary purpose of this non-endowment is to provide scholarship funds to support a Citadel undergraduate student or Citadel Graduate College student in need of financial assistance to complete his or her education. The recipient should possess those attributes of ability, character, temperament, and personality that are in accord with the traditionally high standards of The Citadel. In addition to financial need the recipient should meet the following criterion:

  • Maintain a 2.5 GPA
  • Recommendation from engineering department.
  • Meeting one of the following is desired, but not required:
    • Desire a future career in the aerospace industry
    • Demonstrate an interest in STEM-related studies 



Preference for this scholarship will be given to cadets, veteran students, or graduate students who are members of the Mother Emanuel AME Church of Charleston, SC. Secondary consideration will be given to eligible students who are members of another African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church. In order to be considered, applicants shall submit a letter of reference from a church official representing the congregation to which they belong. In the absence of an eligible recipient who is an active member of an AME Church, students may be invited by The Citadel Chaplain or Director of Financial Aid and Scholarships to apply for scholarship consideration by submitting a similar letter of reference.  Please contact the Citadel Chaplain to inquire about recommendations.
