Financial Aid

Applicants to the program who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents are typically eligible for federal Stafford student loans. All interested applicants must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Following admission, all students who submitted a FAFSA form will be advised by the School of their eligibility for federal aid via an award letter with the forms and materials needed to apply for Stafford loans. Additional financing support in the form of private loans can help to meet the full cost of tuition. Students enrolled in the M.A. Program in Climate and Society are eligible to have prior federal student loans deferred during their term of study.

For more information on financial aid please visit the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS) Financial Aid webpage. All questions regarding financial aid should be addressed to GSAS.


NOTE: Students who apply to the M.A. Program are automatically considered for M.A. Program scholarships and are encouraged to apply early. There is no separate application form.

M.A. program scholarships are limited and it is not possible to offer program scholarships to all students who are offered admission. However, all students are offered the opportunity to earn hourly pay working on climate related projects.

All applicants should make a serious effort to apply to outside scholarships.
