Graduate school at IPFW may be more affordable than you think.

With Indiana University and Purdue University degrees at one-third less cost, IPFW offers more for less. Fort Wayne is a thriving, mid-size city with a low cost of living. And, we provide opportunities for:

  • Paid graduate teaching, research, or administrative assistantships
  • Chancellor’s Merit Awards, allowing eligible out-of-state or international students to defray tuition to the same rate as in-state students
  • Travel grants to help present research locally and nationally

Remember to explore subsidized Federal Stafford Loans, unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans, and Federal Work-Study.
