Financial Aid

Grants (General Financial Aid)

To be considered for a grant, you must have submitted a complete application to the School of the Environment. Do not wait for an admissions decision from the School of the Environment to submit your financial aid application. You should apply for financial aid as soon as possible after October 1st, but please note that your financial information will not be reviewed until you have been accepted by School of the Environment.

You must also have submitted a School of the Environment Financial Aid Application, including all other requested documentation. All financial aid is based on financial need, as determined by Student Financial Services.
