Financial Assistance

The Office of Financial Aid provides students with the financial resources and information that they need to successfully complete their graduate study.

  • All entering doctoral students in the humanities, social sciences, and sciences will receive a five-year fellowship package. These packages include tuition remission and many also include a generous stipend and health insurance. Browse institutional aid for doctoral students here.
  • Fall applicants for Graduate Center master’s program are automatically considered for the Dean’s Merit Scholarship.
  • 45% of entering students are also guaranteed to receive summer support for the five years. These summer fellowships are used to assist students with their research during the summer months. Additional funding opportunities may be available to students via a competitive application process.
  • The GC has tripled its student research funding. This funding provides yearlong fellowships for students for students working on both early and dissertation-stage research. Many of the dissertation fellowships will also provide an in-state tuition scholarship.
  • Federal aid, including work study, is available to those students who qualify.
