We want to make sure that the cost of your continuing education and professional studies does not stand in the way of your goals. The Narrative Medicine M.S. program offers partial merit scholarships. Applicants need not submit a separate application for merit scholarship funding; all applicants are considered. Applications received earlier in the application cycle are more likely to receive awards, though it is possible to receive an award at any point.

Visit Financial Resources for master's degree students to learn about outside funding sources, work-study, funds for U.S. military veterans, and more.
