Financing Your Education
Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology and Yeshiva University's Office of Student Finance assist students in putting together a funding package through a variety of resources--grants or scholarships, loans and work study, which can help cover the cost of your education. Students seeking financial assistance from Yeshiva University who are U.S. citizens or eligible noncitizens are required to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is also the application for the Federal Direct Stafford Loans and other federal programs. The FAFSA deadline for Ferkauf students who wish to be considered for scholarships and other forms of financial aid in the upcoming academic year is April 30, 2013.
The Yeshiva University school code is 002903; campus code: 00.
International students (non-U.S. citizens) who are interested in receiving a needs-based scholarship should complete the International Graduate Student Financial Aid Application (PDF) to determine their eligibility. The deadline for Ferkauf students who wish to be considered for scholarships and other forms of financial aid in the upcoming academic year is April 30, 2013.
Scholarships, Fellowships, Assistantships and Grants
No Application are Required in order to be considered for these scholarships. Once a student is accepted that will be alerted if they qualify for the following scholarships:
Ferkauf Incentive Scholarship Program for Incoming Students
Ferkauf Diversity Scholarship
Graduate School Research and Teaching Assistantships
Opportunities to work on research projects, aid instruction in the classroom and supervise a lab are available each semester. Since assistantships are chosen by the individual faculty member, students should consult directly with their adviser and program director.
Grant-Supported Research Programs
Ferkauf and Yeshiva University's Albert Einstein College of Medicine are both located at the Jack and Pearl Resnick Campus. Many Ferkauf and Einstein faculty have ongoing grant-funded research programs that make paid research positions available to Ferkauf students.
These programs, sponsored by both YU and the federal government, defer repayment of principal and accrued interest as long as students are enrolled at least half time.
YU Loan Program
This program offers $2,000 per year at 5% interest. Repayment begins nine months after students are no longer enrolled at least half time and typically is in repayment for 10 years. Eligibility is determined by financial need.
Federal Direct Stafford Loan Program (FDL)
Please refer to the Office of Student Finance's Web site for more information about this program.
Outside Scholarships and Financial Assistance
We've also compiled a list of outside scholarships and other financial assistance (PDF) that all students should review.
Additional funding sources are often available through programs funded by outside groups such as community centers, labor unions, women's organizations and fraternal and civic organizations. Students are encouraged to research possible external sources of funding for their education.
Renewing Your Financial Aid Package
Students must reapply for financial assistance each year. Since personal finances are subject to change, the Office of Student Finance continually works with students to assure the continuity of the student's education.
Each year, a limited number of student scholarships are available to assist students with tuition payments. Students demonstrating financial need are encouraged to apply. In order to simplify, expedite and make the application process more efficient, Office of Student Finance created a new application.
