Funding for Master's Students
In general, Master’s degree students do not receive funding from the Graduate School. However, some master’s degree programs are able to provide tuition fellowships or stipends to some of their students. Inquire with your program for more information.
If you are enrolled in a Master’s degree program and are registered at least half-time, you will receive Basic Coverage through Yale Health. Enrollment is automatic, based on term registration. You do not need to apply for, or waive, this coverage.
Additional Sources of Funding for Master’s Students
- External Grants, Scholarships, and Fellowships - If you are a Master’s degree student, we strongly encourage you to apply for external support from funding agencies. Search the Yale Student Grants Database for opportunities. If you win any external awards, please notify the Graduate Financial Aid Office by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Loans - You may be eligible for loans. Loan processes vary by citizenship.
- Student Employment - You may be eligible for on-campus employment so long as it does not conflict with your academic progress. Some restrictions apply.
