Graduate Information

Making an investment in your graduate education is a wise decision, but we understand that navigating the financial aid process can be challenging. 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.

Various forms of financial aid are available to support your studies at the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences (GRS). All newly admitted PhD students will receive a full fellowship offer, and all newly admitted MFA students in Creative Writing and Playwriting will receive a full tuition scholarship and a stipend.
