Berkeley MFE Scholarships

The following scholarships were made available by our generous donors to all admitted students. You may also apply for the general need-based scholarship. These scholarships will require you to submit an application that is accessible through the scholarship portal.

In addition, all candidates will be considered for a partial-tuition Merit Scholarship. There is no application required and typically the merit scholarship will be offered at the time the admissions decision is made.

Student Loans

The majority of assistance is in the form of loans. Students can often borrow Federal or Private Loans up to the Cost of Attendance.

Federal Loans

We participate in Federal Loans for US citizens and permanent residents. Due to the nontraditional academic calendar of the MFE Program, students will need to go through the loan process twice for Federal Loans (once for the Spring & Summer terms, and once for the Fall & Winter terms).

More about Federal Loans

Private Loans

We also participate in private loan programs for those that feel they may get a better rate than the federal loans or for international students that have a U.S. cosigner.

International Loans

If you are an international student without a U.S. cosigner you may be able to borrow up to $60,000 from a risk-share loan that does not require a cosigner.
