Spring 2024 applicants to our degree programs may apply for need-based grants. These grants are awarded to supplement existing forms of aid for students demonstrating financial need.


We offer a limited number of need-based grants of up to $4,000 annually. These grants are awarded in addition to merit or need-based scholarships and do not need to be repaid.

Spring 2024 Application

Spring 2024 applicants need to follow the steps below. Future applicants will automatically be considered for similar grants during their degree application process. All U.S. and international spring 2024 applicants are eligible to apply.

  • While prospective students may apply, we only review applications for the need-based grant after you have been admitted.

  • U.S. students must also submit a FAFSA to be considered for a grant.

  • You will need to apply for the need-based grant each academic year of your program. You will be sent a reminder email with instructions at the appropriate time.

  • Grants are awarded only for the fall and spring semesters.

  • Primary consideration for need-based grants is given to students with substantial previous education debt.

Application Process

  • Complete the financial aid application.

  • Submit your completed application for admission to a degree program, plus all supporting documents, including transcripts, test scores, letters of recommendation, résumé, and essays.

  • If you are married, you will need to submit income and asset information for your spouse.

  • U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and qualifying resident aliens are also required to complete a FAFSA for the appropriate academic year.
