Applicants to the Institute degree programs may apply for our Need-Based Grant. These grants are awarded to supplement existing forms of aid for students demonstrating financial need.
The Institute offers Need-Based Grants of up to $5,000. These grants are awarded in addition to Merit Scholarships and do not need to be repaid. Applicants who submit all required materials and demonstrate financial need will be considered for the limited funds available. There is a $28 application fee to apply, and the priority deadline for Fall 2014 applicants is March 1st, 2014.
All prospective and admitted degree-seeking U.S. and international students are invited to apply. Applicants for the Need-Based Grant will be considered based on financial need once they submit the form and all necessary documents. Eligible applicants must meet these requirements:
Applicants must meet the requirements for admission to the Institute degree programs, and be admitted to one of these programs. Please note that while prospective students may apply, we will only review applications for the Need-Based Grant after the student has been admitted. Since we accept applications for admission to our degree programs on a rolling basis, you can apply to our programs at any time, and you can apply for financial aid at any time. These deadlines mentioned are optimal in order to be awarded available funds and to receive timely disbursement of funds.
Submit your completed application for admission to a degree program plus all supporting documents including transcripts, test scores, letters of recommendation, resume and statement of purpose by the priority scholarship deadline. Late applications will be considered on a funds-available basis. Apply online.
