We are proud of the scholars who pass through Brandeis, and we encourage all current students and alums interested in pursuing a graduate education to apply to GSAS. We offer several services to existing members of our community. Please contact us at 781-736-3410 or at gsas@brandeis.edu if you have any questions about these services.

Current students and alums do not pay the application fee, and many programs will forgo the GRE requirements for members of the Brandeis community. We will waive the tuition deposit for alums who are accepted to one of our programs.

We offer generous alum scholarships for many of our master’s programs. This scholarship may be in addition to any need-based aid for which an alum may be eligible. To find out more, please visit the alum scholarship page in our financial aid section. 

Current undergraduate students may want to consider our dual bachelor's/master's degree programs, which save students time and money.

One of Brandeis's Earliest Alums Spends Her Life Preserving History

Adaire Klein and four other students sit with Eleanor Roosevelt.
Adaire Klein '53, MA '57 in Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, was a member of the very first class to enter GSAS in 1953. She went on to work at Los Angeles's Museum of Tolerance, which preserves the memory of the Holocaust.
