Grants & Scholarships

George Fox University offers several financial assistance programs for its degree-seeking students. Loans are a primary source of financial aid for graduate study. A limited number of need-based and academic-based grants and scholarships are available in some programs. Check with your financial aid counselor for more information. All students in need of financial aid are encouraged to apply.

The total financial aid package including all grants, scholarships, and loans may not exceed the amount of need when federal program funds are included.

  • Be enrolled in an approved teaching-related degree

The TEACH Grant does not have to be repaid unless the student fails to carry out service obligations:

  • Teach full-time in a high-need field
  • Serve four years at an elementary school, secondary school, or educational service agency
  • Serve students from low-income families
  • Complete the four eligible years of service within eight years of graduation
