Finance Your Education
Financial Aid & ScholarshipsThe goals of the Financial Aid Program at Teachers College are to reward academic excellence through merit-based aid and to ease the cost barrier of attendance through scholarships and need-based programs including grants, Federal loans, and the Federal Work-Study Program. Please visit the Financial Aid Website for more detailed information.
Each year Teachers College awards over $7 million of its own funds and $2 million of endowed funds to new and continuing students. There are over 300 endowed funds provided by the generosity of donors. The majority are specific to a particular program. Scholarships provide tuition funding for eligible part- and full-time students in some of TC's degree programs. Program faculty make the awards. Depending on the fund, new and/or continuing students are eligible.
