Scholarships & Financial Aid
The Dartmouth Institute is committed to assisting students with meeting the cost of their education. This year, 94% of students received a loan and/or scholarship from Dartmouth.
Scholarship awards from The Dartmouth Institute are made possible through the generosity of alumni, corporations, and nonprofit foundations. However, the school has limited scholarship funds and may not be able to fully meet each student’s needs. Recipients are generally notified at the time of their offer of admission.
We offer scholarships to U.S. permanent residents and international students based on merit. The Dartmouth Institute scholarships range anywhere from $1,000 up to half of tuition. Scholarship funds are equally dispersed across each term you are enrolled as a student.
Priority consideration is given to candidates who submit their application by the first round deadline on December 1. All candidates whose application is submitted by February 1 will be reviewed for a scholarship; there is no additional scholarship application required.
Our admissions and financial aid offices will review the application materials submitted by candidates for admission. In assessing merit, we consider a variety of factors, including exceptional academic performance, leadership, professional accomplishments, service, and ability to contribute to the diversity of the Dartmouth community.
Tuition and stipend scholarships are available for the PhD Program.
There is also a scholarship search engine through SOPHAS.
Federal Student Loans
To apply for federal student loan eligibility, all students need to complete the following two steps:
1) File the FAFSA. Dartmouth’s school code is 002573
We need both forms to generate the official award package. Information about the application process can be found on Dartmouth’s Financial Aid website.
Federal loans are available to U.S. citizens enrolled at least half-time and making satisfactory progress in a degree program. Federal financial aid to graduate students is available through the Federal Direct Loan program and the Federal Graduate PLUS Loan program.
If you have questions about the loan application process after reviewing the information on the web page, you may contact Dartmouth’s Financial Aid office at (603)646-2451 or email at [email protected].
Work study is not available for Dartmouth Institute graduate students.
