Financial Support

Incoming students may be eligible for financial support in the form of teaching assistantships, program fellowships, or tuition awards. However, there is not sufficient aid to cover tuition in full. In addition to any financial awards they may receive, most students finance their education through a combination of loans, grants, and work study.

Applicants who would like to be considered for financial aid should indicate their interest on the Graduate School Application, and complete theFree Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible.  For more information, please email the Graduate School Financial Aid Office at

Likewise, please visit the Graduate School website for helpful information on financial support for Masters Degree Students. The Office of Research Support also provides details on potential funding sources for graduate study at Duke.
