Alfred University provides substantial financial support for graduate study. Most of the University-funded assistance is provided in the form of assistantships and fellowships which are awarded by the academic departments and Alfred University faculty advisors.

In the assignment of assistantships, factors such as academic record, purpose in graduate study, professional accomplishments, personal character, and experience may be considered. The University also provides a limited amount of need-based hardship funding.

In addition to its own resources, the University participates in the federal and state aid programs which are applicable to its degree programs. The majority of this funding is in the form of low-interest student loans.

Federal, state, and University need-based financial aid programs are reserved for United States citizens or persons with permanent visas. Scholarships are available each year to qualified undergraduate international students. For further information, contact the International Student Coordinator in the Admissions Office.
