Financial Aid

Financial Aid

The Graduate School and School of Education at Syracuse University grant merit-based awards to outstanding students. These awards include fellowships, scholarships, and assistantships and are highly competitive. Need-based financial aid at Syracuse University is primarily in the form of loan programs and college-work study. Graduate students who are U.S. Citizens may apply for need-based financial aid through the Office of Financial Aid.
