Scholarship Deadline

The scholarship application deadline is March 15, 2015. Due to the high demand for financial aid, late applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Financing Options


Financial Aid

For students who need financial assistance, Brandeis offers a limited number of need-based scholarships and has created a fundraising guide to help students seeking financial assistance to cover tuition.

Modeled on programs where students often cover the full cost of their attendance though local fundraising, the fundraising guide provides you with step by step instructions for connecting with supportive donors in your local community.  While Brandeis maintains a small number of scholarships for the program, the fundraising guide ensures that the program remains accessible to a wide variety of students of talent, and provides an opportunity to further develop leadership skills while helping expand a student’s grass roots support networks.

In order to apply for a scholarship, students must submit a Summit application and be admitted. Once admitted, students can access the scholarship application through their status page.
