Financing Your Graduate Education

At the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences, we value the knowledge, skills, and relevant contributions our MA and MS students continue to bring to our academic programs, research opportunities, and overall community during their time here. The financial aid office in the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences (GRS) is here as a resource and strives to provide you with all of the information you need, so that you can explore your options and make an educated decision about the best way to finance your education.

Various forms of financial aid are available to support your studies at the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences (GRS). In addition to loans (federal and credit-based) and external funding opportunities that are available, we offer a range of School and department-based aid in the form of fellowships, scholarships, and research assistantships.

Financial Aid may not exceed your total Cost of Attendance. When estimating the total cost of attendance at GRS, you will need to consider BU medical insurance and living expenses such as housing, transportation, etc.

Contact us with any questions that you may have regarding the financial aid process. We are available Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm.
