Admission and Financial Aid

Admission to the graduate programs in the NEJS department is competitive and selective. We seek scholars who will greatly contribute to the field and that are passionate about their research. Prospective applicants apply to the NEJS department through the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

Applicants are required to submit:

  • an application form (preferably online)
  • a nonrefundable application fee
  • a personal statement
  • letters of recommendation
  • official test scores
  • undergraduate and graduate transcripts
  • a writing sample

Because application requirements may vary by degree program, you should be sure to follow the deadlines set forth by the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

Ph.D. students normally receive full scholarship support from the university, along with a stipend and health insurance for five years. Many of our master’s degree students also receive partial scholarship support that is based upon a combination of need and academic merit.
