Monique, our new Assistant Director of Financial Aid and Admission, comes to us from Northeastern University, where she served as a Financial Aid Counselor. As the number of students in master’s and post-baccalaureate programs at Brandeis continues to grow, Monique will provide guidance to students regarding their financial aid packages from Brandeis, their federal and private loans, and other matters related to financing their education.

“I am excited to be working at Brandeis University in GSAS to assist students with funding their graduate education. I am a firm believer in diverse, global perspectives and I am happy to be part of an institution that promotes these qualities. Please feel free to contact me with any questions about financial aid!”
