DETAILS | Columbia University GSAPP Admission Scholarships

GSAPP scholarships for new students are competitive and are offered based on recommendations by the program’s admissions committee. These scholarships are given out at the time of admission.

Since fellowships, scholarships, and assistantships at GSAPP are competitive, not all admitted or enrolled students will be able to apply for them. Each candidate is given the chance to complete a need analysis that is submitted with the entrance application and is taken into consideration for merit-based scholarships.

The Columbia University Office of Student Financial Services works with the GSAPP Office of Admission and Financial Aid to provide student support including Federal Loan processing and information on the Estimated Cost of Attendance and Types of Aid.
