The Fletcher School awards over $3 million dollars in scholarship aid annually. Scholarship decisions are made by the Committee on Admissions and Scholarships based on merit and need. Need is assessed with the Fletcher Scholarship Application (included with the application for admission). Scholarships are renewable for the second year of study unless otherwise noted.
All applicants who complete the Fletcher Scholarship Application by January 15 are eligible for scholarship aid consideration. No distinction is made between US and international students in awarding scholarship funds.
