Tuition

The department of World Languages & Literature offers merit scholarships to our MFA in Literary Translation applicants based upon the strength of each applicant’s credentials. All admitted domestic and international applicants are considered for scholarship of up to 50% of full-time tuition and will be notified of the scholarship offer in the admission letter.

The Graduate School of Arts & Sciences Financial Aid Office, located at 705 Commonwealth Avenue, Suite 112, is a resource for current and prospective GRS students and can provide assistance with scholarship and federal loan processing. Students are welcome to contact GRS with any questions regarding tuition or financial aid at grsaid@bu.edu or (617) 353-2696.
