Funding

At Chicago Harris, they know that the cost for your degree will be significant; we are committed to helping identify financial resources to assist with managing the cost. Financial aid is calculated based on a standardized cost of attendance: tuition, room and board, books, transportation, and personal/miscellaneous expenses for three academic quarters (nine months). The Office of Admissions notifies you of any merit scholarship award at the time of your admission. At that time, we also provide you with information on applying for loans and work.

Financial Aid for Master's Students

Each year, approximately 30-40 percent of Chicago Harris students receive some kind of financial aid. The School assists many students with both scholarships and fellowships that are awarded on a competitive, merit basis. Additionally, the University provides loan assistance and work-study to students who demonstrate financial need. You can learn more about financial aid for master’s students here.

Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
