  • Financing Your Education

    Most students will find it necessary to finance their education through a combination of sources.Wurzweiler School of Social Work and the University's Office of Student Finance work closely with prospective and current master's and doctoral students in accessing a variety of financial resources to help fund their graduate and post-graduate-school education. These include federal student loans, private loans, institutional scholarships and external scholarships.

    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 Yeshiva University school code is 002903; campus code: 00.

    For more information, including the latest tuition and fees figures, please visit Yeshiva University's Office of Student Finance.

    International Students

    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.


    Scholarships are determined by the Wurzweiler Dean's Office and include merit scholarships, which are awarded to a select number of incoming Wurzweiler students who demonstrate academic excellence in their undergraduate studies and a strong commitment to the field of social work through their work and/or volunteer experiences. No additional applications are required for these scholarships, and accepted students are notified at the time of acceptance to Wurzweiler.

    Needs-based scholarships are awarded based on a student's demonstration of financial need as determined by the results of the FAFSA filing. Every U.S. citizen or permanent resident seeking financial aid is urged to complete the FAFSA (school code: 002903; campus code: 00).

    The amount of scholarships may not exceed tuition.

    Merit Scholarship Award Policy

    All Merit Scholarships are awarded contingent upon the student’s continued satisfactory completion of all coursework and fieldwork. It is expected that all Merit Scholarship winners will maintain at least a "B" average in all courses. Additionally, if a student is unable to complete his/her coursework and/or fieldwork in a satisfactory manner, the scholarship may be withdrawn. The administration will consider each situation on a case-by-case basis, to determine if continued Merit Scholarship funding is warranted.

    Outside Scholarships and Other Financial Assistance

    We have also compiled a list of outside scholarships and other financial assistance (PDF) that all students should review.

    Additional funding sources may be 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 the 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 the students to assure the continuity of the student's education.
