Financial Aid

Many students in the IAL program access a variety of loans, some of them through local banks and others funded by the federal government.  As the IAL program does not receive funding from the Washington state legislature, it does not qualify for all scholarships, fellowships, and grants that are available to state-funded programs.  For further information on financial aid, visit the following websites:

Because IAL is a fee-based program, as opposed to a state funded program, read this information carefully to determine eligibility. Students in all fee-based programs, including IAL, are ineligible for the tuition exemption program, institutional tuition waivers or the Undergraduate/Graduate University Grant programs, including the Husky Promise program.

IAL Scholarships

The Center for Leadership in Athletics and IAL Program awards Faculty Merit Scholarships to multiple students following the summer session.  These merit-based awards are voted on by IAL faculty members and awarded based on academic excellence and positive contribution throughout the summer session.

Historically, traditional graduate assistantships with Husky Athletics have been limited.  However, most internships within the athletic department are accompanied by some form of compensation, which helps our students mitigate program cost.  The Husky Athletic Department is a strong partner and sees our students as good candidates for these positions.
