Scholarships + Financial Aid

We offer a number of merit-based scholarships and fellowships. Find out more below.

When you complete your Humphrey School application for admission, you supply sufficient information to apply for most scholarships and fellowships. Any extra requirements (statements, etc.) can be found below.

There are two key deadlines for applicants to keep in mind as they plan to submit their application. First, December 15 is the deadline for consideration for the DOVE, FLAS, and ICGC fellowships. MDP, MPP, MS STEP, and MURP applicants applying by this date will be considered automatically for nomination to applicable fellowships. Second, the deadline for all Humphrey School merit-based financial aid for MDP, MPA, MPP, MS STEP, and MURP programs is January 15. Applicants should review aid information for the degree program to which they are applying below, and note that all required application materials must be received by the dates above for consideration.

We are committed to serving as a resource to admitted applicants as they make their graduate school decision. The Funding Your Humphrey School Education memo is intended to provide an overview of ways in which incoming students may seek funding.
