Financial Aid

Financial Aid is a concern for many of our students. Our Master of Architecture programs qualify for the tuition break offered by the New England Regional Students Program (NERSP) to New England Residents. Our undergraduate program qualifies for NERSP as well, with the exception of students from Maine and New Hampshire, which have their own equivalent programs. Graduate students have a variety of opportunities in addition to standard financial aid, for funding their studies. In addition to selective positions such as Teaching Assistant or Research Assistant, graduate students can seek out and establish Externships on- and off-campus that qualify for tuition remission.  In addition, particular positions on campus, such as election to the Graduate Student Council also qualify.

The Department of Architecture can also nominate qualified current and incoming graduate students for highly-competitive, university-wide Graduate School Fellowships, such as the Joseph L. Boscov Scholarship for a female graduate student whose work will “equip her for increased service to the needs of people and/or the environment.”  Foreign students should consult with the International Programs Office for additional opportunities, such as nomination for the Foreign Students Tuition Waiver, which is available on a competitive basis.
