Scholarships

The Sport Management Master's Program awards a limited number of merit-based scholarships to incoming students. These scholarships are a one-time award and are used to cover tuition costs in a student's first or second semester of the Sport Management Program. These scholarships do not require a separate application; all applicants to the Sport Management Program are considered during the admission decision process.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)

The following FAFSA instructions are specific to U.S. students in the Sport Management who seek a federal student loan. If you start the program in spring 2015 you file the 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). If you start in summer 2015 then you need to file the 2014-2015 FAFSA by June 1, 2015. This deadline ensures that your summer 2015 aid eligibility is processed by the USF Financial Aid Office by the beginning of your Summer semester.

Once notified of your 2014-2015 loan eligibility for summer 2015 enrollment, you then file a FAFSA 2015-2016 renewal as soon as possible so that your aid eligibility is extended for the entire next academic year. For financial aid questions, please contact the University of San Francisco's Office of Financial Aid.

For students who apply for financial aid please note the following tables, which outline the required FAFSA cycles.
