Funding

We are committed to helping you find funding to cover tuition and expenses. As part of your admission to the school, we try to match you with numerous scholarships—your application for these funds is automatic, no action is required of you. If you're selected for any of these, based on merit and financial need, we'll let you know in August.

If you have questions about what financial resources are available to you to help pay for your education, contact Student Affairs Program Manager Eileen F. Brussolo.

Our admissions committee and scholarship awarding team work collectively to identify nominees for scholarships administered by the School of Education. Please also see below for information on additional financial resources that might be available to you.
