Current undergraduate students at the George Washington University (GW) may be eligible and interested to participate in the Grad2Grad program to continue graduate study (master's and graduate certificate programs) at GW. Not only can you apply to a variety of GW graduate programs, but you will also receive a 10% reduction in the cost of your tuition.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact the Office of Graduate Student Assistantships and Fellowships at [email protected] or 202-994-6822.  For award processing inquiries, please contact Peter Van Riper: [email protected].


If you plan to complete or already finished your degree in 2018 and 2019, you qualify for the Grad2Grad program as long as you immediately enroll in a graduate program (master's or graduate certificate program). If you graduated in 2018 you must have enrolled no later than Spring 2019 and if you are graduating in 2019 you must enroll no later than Spring 2020. (Please note that to maintain eligibility, you must be continuously enrolled for all semesters until the degree is earned. Summer registration is allowed, but not required.)
