Financial Aid and Scholarships
The Hornstein Program considers all accepted students for generous scholarships that cover all or part of tuition. No additional application procedures are necessary to apply for these funds.
In addition to Hornstein funds, all applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for external scholarship programs such as those listed below and to the right. Along with providing funds that can be used to supplement Hornstein awards, many of these scholarships provide significant training and mentoring opportunities for their award winners. Please note carefully the application deadlines for each funder.
Major sources of scholarship aid for graduate study in Jewish communal leadership include:
- The Wexner Graduate Fellows/Davidson Scholars Program, (deadline: February 4, 2013)
- FEREP: Federation Executive Recruitment and Education Program (deadline: February 15, 2013)
Students receiving outside scholarships in excess of $5,000 per year shall inform the Hornstein Program and Graduate School. Ordinarily, 60% of the student's external scholarship may be used at the student's discretion. Forty percent will be applied toward the cost of tuition and fees, first to cover the student's contribution and, then, if funds remain, to reduce the student's Hornstein grant.
Non-competitive, need-based financial aid is also available. To be considered for need-based aid, applicants should submit the College Scholarship Service (CSS) PROFILE form, available online at profileonline.collegeboard.com or call (800) 778-6888. The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences code is 0046.
Tuition for the 2013-2014 fall and spring semesters is $44,100. (Please see the Graduate School's Cost of Attendance Calculator for a complete breakdown of costs, including Summer 2013 tuition and estimated living expenses.)
