P-MAP Financial Aid Opportunities

Federal Financial Aid

Students who are admitted to the P-MAP program are responsible for paying the academic and living expenses outlined in the P-MAP estimated cost of attendance.  Financial aid is available to those who qualify based on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Graduate students may be eligible to receive aid from the following federal student aid programs:  Direct Loan Program, Federal Perkins Loan Program, and Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program.

The Federal Direct Loan Program offers the Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan and Federal Direct Grad PLUS loans.

All matriculating P-MAP students will be placed on the Perkins Loan waitlist to be reviewed for eligibility independently of the Federal Direct Loans. You will be notified if you are awarded Perkins as funds are limited and are based on high financial-need.

Federal Work-Study is available to graduate students based on financial need and available funds. The P-MAP curriculum is rigorous and the program requirements do not generally allow for employment. If interested in FWS, please discuss with the P-MAP coordinator and the College of Medicine Financial Aid Office.


For internal and external scholarship opportunities, please visit The University of Arizona’s (UA) Scholarship Universe (SU). Scholarship Universe is a scholarship matching portal that determines eligibility for all available scholarships based on the student profile question responses.  A UA NetID is required to log into SU.  If you are not a UA student, you will not be able to create a profile until you are admitted, but you will be able to see a list of available scholarships and related information. P-MAP students are encouraged to apply for all available scholarships that are designated within the SU portal and research other scholarships available through public and private organizations. The University of Arizona Graduate College also lists funding and financial information -
