Financing Your Education
MS in International and Development Economics Specific Financial Aid
We offer a limited number of merit-based scholarships to incoming students on a competitive basis. This department-based assistance ranges from $2,600 to $15,000. All applicants, both U.S. and international students, are considered for these scholarships when the applications are reviewed. There is no separate application for this type of financial assistance.
Teaching and Research Assistantships
Several teaching and research assistantships are available to qualified students after their first semester of graduate studies.
Overseas Field Study Internship
A limited number of travel stipends are available from the university to help cover the costs of the summer internship, but are not guaranteed. Typically, in past years the graduate program has assisted in partially covering airfare and living expenses. However, each year the program's contribution varies. Students are advised to factor the costs of their overseas field study internship into the total cost of their program.
