Scholarships & Financial Aid

The Office of Admissions and Financial Aid provides assistance to students in securing the financial means to pursue higher education. Our goal is to educate students about their financial rights and responsibilities to enable them to make informed decisions about their educational funding and to encourage responsible borrowing and repayment practices.

Our office supports the school's goal of enrolling and educating a talented, dynamic and diverse student body and will serve as a resource to current and future students as well as our alumni. Students are encouraged to learn more about:

  • SCHOLARSHIPS & FELLOWSHIPS: merit-based scholarships, partner-based scholarships and other funding awarded at the time of admission by Heinz College specific to their program of interest, AND
  • EXTERNAL SCHOLARSHIPS: funding available from sources other than CMU and Heinz College

Additional financial resources can also be found on this page's navigation and other pages in this section.
