Scholarship Resources

The Haas Financial Aid Office has developed outside scholarship resources in a central location as a service to prospective and current students.

Please also review the Graduate Division website for possible university-wide opportunities.

Veterans Benefits

Veterans Benefits can be a lucrative funding option. Veteran students in our self-supporting programs have had all assessed fees covered for their graduate degree.

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).

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.
