Program Overview

The Center for Multicultural Engagement and Inclusion (CMEI) and C2 Hub’s Graduate School Pathways Program have collaborated to provide financial assistance to MSU Denver students who are pursuing graduate school. Our goal is to remove obstacles that could prevent students from completing graduate program applications. Through these efforts, we aim to increase representation of students from low-income backgrounds, first generation college attendants, and students of color who submit graduate applications, are admitted to graduate programs, and complete graduate degrees.

This resource prioritizes low-income students, first-generation students, and students of color, but is open to all students interested in attending graduate school.

Supporting your graduate school goals through:

  • Up to $180 for graduate application expenses
  • Advising and advocacy throughout the process of learning, exploring, applying, and accepting graduate school admissions
  • Additional financial support (dependent on availability of funds) for students invited* to visit graduate institutions, and for graduate program commitment fees

*Graduate invitations most commonly extended for students applying to funded PhD programs. Evidence of official invitation, funding terms, potential advisors, and expenses required for consideration
