There are many scholarships, work-study positions, and graduate assistantships at MIIS. In addition, a large proportion of the students who are U.S. citizens have some kind of financial aid. Please check out the MIIS website for complete information. The tuition is typical of private schools. (Please check the website for the actual amount.) Also, since MIIS does not have doctoral programs, students who apply for scholarships or graduate assistantships here are not competing with PhD candidates.
In your final semester of study, you will receive a half tuition PCMI scholarship in lieu of any merit scholarship you began your studies with. In addition, if you have a Perkins Loan that disbursed prior to your Peace Corps Service, you may be eligible for up to 30% cancellation of these loans funds based on 27 months of Peace Corps service.
