The Early Identification Program (EIP) is an innovative, multi-year college preparatory program for high school students. Program activities are free and are held on the Fairfax and Prince William Campuses of George Mason University. Examples of activities include mentoring; math, science, and English aid; and preparing the family about college. Admission to George Mason University is guaranteed to those who successfully complete both the EIP program with at least a 3.2 GPA and an academic program in high school. Financial aid is available to program participants who apply to George Mason University and show need.
Mason offers full-tuition scholarships for four students in the Early Identification Program. These scholarships cover the costs of in-state tuition only, and does not cover room and board, meals, books, or lab or other fees. The EIP actively pursues support for other scholarships from private sponsors and donors, but cannot guarantee the number of scholarships offered in a given year.
Additionally, Mason assists matriculated George Mason students who are at risk of not continuing their education due to unexpected financial situations, through the Stay Mason Student Support Fund. The fund is for all students – undergraduate and graduate, full-time and part-time – enrolled in degree-seeking programs. The fund is designed to provide temporary, short-term, financial assistance to students who are managing demanding academic requirements while struggling with debilitating financial circumstances. It is not intended to provide ongoing relief for recurring expenses, and the financial assistance is not a loan that is expected to be repaid.
The Child Development Center (CDC) opened August 31, 1992, at 4400 Patriot Circle. The CDC provides regular childcare for children 2-5 years old for two, three, or five days a week. The Center has since doubled in size and currently has an enrollment of 120 children with two classrooms for each age group. The center is licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia.
George Mason University offers the Osher Re-Entry Quasi Endowed Scholarship, which is awarded to re-entry students pursuing their first Bachelor's degree. Students who had an education gap of five or more years, between the ages of 25-50, or demonstrate financial aid are all eligible to apply for the scholarship.
The university also has three separate scholarships awarded to undergraduate and/or graduate students who are single parents of a dependent child/children, and demonstrating financial need.
