    Each year, EWU awards a limited number of tuition waivers and other forms of support on a competitive basis through the Graduate Studies Office, upon recommendation from an academic program or administrative office, to graduate students of outstanding promise. Departments recommend students for awards from annual departmental waiver allocations. Follow the links below or on the left menu for information about the three tuition waiver programs administered in the Graduate Studies Office.
