Scholarships and Financial Assistance

A very limited amount of need-based financial assistance is available for residents of resource-limited countries. There is no separate application for scholarships or financial assistance. Any financial assistance decisions are made at the discretion of the faculty.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to pursue other additional scholarship opportunities and offerings through their employer, university, funding organization, their home country’s ministry of cultural affairs, education or health, and/or local foundations or groups. Accepted students must seek and secure any financial assistance needed prior to their arrival. For non-US citizens, documentation of sufficient funding is required for a visa.
