Medical Insurance

Each year, all full and 3/4 time students must enroll in the qualifying School Health Plan (SHP) or waive the plan and report their own comparable health insurance coverage. All international students at Brandeis are automatically enrolled in the Student Health Insurance. Medical insurance is charged each fall and covers the student for a full year. For students starting in the spring semester, the Semester 1 charge will be prorated. 

Employment Opportunities

Students may apply for on-campus jobs at the start of a program, and may apply for Teaching Assistant and Research Assistant positions after being enrolled in their program for at least one semester.

Additional Scholarships

There are a limited number of merit-based and need-based scholarships available to students currently enrolled in programs. Students may apply for these awards in the spring semester of their first year of the program.
