We know that affordability is a critical consideration in your exploration of graduate programs. Bryn Mawr offers graduate students a number of financial support opportunities.

Financial support includes fellowships, teaching assistantships, and Graduate Assistantships for the academic years as well as Supplemental Summer Support (SSRF and RA).  All Fellowships and Assistantships include health insurance coverage and a tuition award. 

The annual financial support for a full-time GSAS student, including the tuition waiver, health insurance subsidy and estimated Supplemental Summer Support, ranges from $72,072 to $94,906 in 2023-2024.

The Academic Year financial support is awarded during the admissions process and there is no additional application to complete - all you need to do is answer yes to the question “do you wish to be considered for financial support” on your application.
