Our financial aid funding is very limited, and we typically experience a higher demand for financial aid than we are able to accommodate. Awards are allocated by need and typically take the form of a partial scholarship. Once an applicant has submitted their academic application, they will gain access to the financial aid application.
The Summer Institutes encourage all families who make less than $60,000 a year to apply for aid. If an applicants family is above this threshold, they may still apply, but should include a supplementary letter clarifying the family's circumstances. Aid can be awarded to both domestic and international participants and does not have an effect on admissions decisions as the financial aid committee only views financial aid applications once admissions decisions have been sent.
