All admitted master's students can apply for merit-based scholarship consideration in the admitted student portal in Slate (where you receive the admissions decision). We encourage you to submit your program application ( for on-campus programs it will be via SOPHAS or online programs via Fastlane) by the priority deadline to ensure you are considered for funding. While it is still possible to be awarded a scholarship later in the admissions cycle, this is dependent upon whether funding is still available. We will use your answers provided on the scholarship application, as well as your program application materials, to determine merit-based aid. Scholarship amounts vary.
