Financial Aid and Scholarships

Financial aid is available to eligible students based on their financial need. Applicants must apply for financial aid through CSUSB or directly from outside funding sources. The MSPA program has no direct involvement in the determining and/or granting of any financial aid.

General information and application forms for financial aid are available at: Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships | CSUSB

Financial aid applicants who meet all the deadlines will be considered for the Federal Stafford Loan and Federal GradPlus Loan. United States government guidelines preclude international students from receiving federal financial assistance through the CSUSB Financial Aid Office. However, international students are eligible and may apply for private financing programs.


Scholarships and grants are a great resource to finance your Master of Science Physician Assistant education. Various scholarships and grants are available and administered through the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships, others are administered by department majors, clubs, and associations on campus. Please contact the Financial Aid department, clubs, or associations directly for more information. Below are a few scholarship opportunities for your consideration:
