*Important notes:* WUSTL is a fully funded university where many graduate studies offer a waiver for the tuition fee and provide stipend for accepted graduate students. In other words, even if you do not get a scholarship, acceptance in WUSTL graduate schools might still mean a full coverage of education and living cost. Application to WUSTL graduate schools (not McDonnell scholarship) is open for students from any background, *not only for UI graduates*. Please refer o each graduate school’s website for further info. WUSTL main website is wustl.edu.
