• Eligibility for Institutional Scholarship Support

    The allocation of institutional financial aid at The New School for Social Research is based on both academic performance and financial need. Normally, awards are extended through the first two (MA) to three (PhD) years of study, provided the student maintains steady progress in a degree program and continues to demonstrate financial need. Guidelines (PDF) for the awarding and renewal of aid are established by the Committee on Admissions, Awards, and Scholarships. Only degree candidates are eligible for institutional scholarships. Note: The New School seldom provides institutional awards to cover doctoral candidacy fees or tuition for students enrolled less than full-time.
