The Office of Financial Aid is concerned with students' educational
expenses. The impact of educational expenses on the student and his or
her family is sizable, and tuition at Rutgers
covers only a small portion of the actual cost of instruction for each
student. In order to allow students with limited financial resources to
attend, every effort is made to assist these students in finding the
funds to finance their education.
amount of financial aid each student receives depends, in part, upon the
availability of funds. The level of support is often dependent upon the
specific graduate program and the student's degree status. Aid ranges
from loans to grants covering tuition charges to awards sufficient to
pay all educational and most living expenses. The sources of support
include university funds, federal and state government funds, corporate
and individual bequests to the university, and grants from educational
and scientific foundations.
