Financial Assistance for the Master’s Programs

The School of Architecture is committed to being financially accessible to students of all backgrounds and from all over the world. Financial aid, consisting of need-based scholarship and/or loans, is offered to the School’s students with demonstrated need.

In order to determine a student’s need-based eligibility, the Yale School of Architecture requires all financial aid applicants submit parental information (must be submitted on the CSS Profile) in order to be considered for financial aid. If you feel you have extenuating circumstances for which parental information should be waived, please contact the financial aid office. Unwillingness, age, marital status, and other standards of dependency are not conditions for which the School of Architecture waives the requirement of parental data.

Barring any significant changes in a student’s financial circumstances (including spousal and parental circumstances), students can generally expect their need-based scholarship awards to be renewed in subsequent years.

U.S. citizens and permanent residents are eligible for federal loans, including a Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan and/or a Federal Direct Graduate PLUS Loan. Non-U.S. citizens and non-permanent residents are eligible for the Yale Graduate and Professional International Loan.
