Financing Your Education

At CAS, we know that the best and brightest future leaders in the arts and sciences come from all academic, social, and economic backgrounds.

We understand that financing your education can be a challenge, which is why we offer financial support to eligible graduate students, both domestic and international, in the form of scholarships, fellowships, and stipends.

CAS also partners with organizations and individuals to provide unique financial assistance and opportunities for students who meet specific criteria required of each partnership. Information on subsidized federal loans is available through the Office of Financial Aid. The CAS graduate admission team is always available to applicants interested in learning more about planning for this important investment in your future.
