Fletcher Scholarships

Fletcher awards over $7 million in scholarship aid annually. Fletcher scholarships are for tuition only and are awarded to both U.S. citizens/permanent residents and non-U.S. citizens on the basis of a holistic application review and assessment of financial need. Financial need is determined through an evaluation of an applicant’s resources, which includes income and asset information. Applying for scholarship assistance has no bearing on the likelihood of admission to Fletcher.

Fletcher is committed to providing scholarship assistance to as many students as possible; however, our resources are limited. While over ninety percent of the candidates requesting scholarship aid receive at least partial funding, Fletcher students need to formulate a financial plan that does not rely solely on Fletcher scholarship aid. Fletcher scholarships typically range from $5,000 per academic year up to full tuition. The middle 50 percent of scholarships awarded are in the $8,000 to $18,000 range. Please note that Fletcher offers very few full tuition scholarships, and assistance to support living expenses is not available.

All applicants to Fletcher residential degree programs seeking scholarship aid must submit a complete Fletcher Scholarship Application (included with the Application for Admission) by January 10. By completing the scholarship application, applicants are eligible for all Fletcher scholarships. All scholarship recipients (including Early Notification candidates) are notified with the release of decisions for the Scholarship Priority Round. Scholarships are renewable in the second year for those students who maintain full-time status and remain in good academic standing. In the event that a student's tuition charges are reduced, the Fletcher scholarship will be pro-rated accordingly.

Tuition scholarships are granted on the basis of a holistic application review and assessment of financial need to PhD students in the coursework phase of their degree. Some stipend funding may also be available and, as scholarships are not tied to research or teaching responsibilities, students may arrange their own preferred work during the academic year. Scholarships are also available for the Enrollment Fee paid by PhD students who have completed their coursework. Applicants for admission to the PhD program should complete the scholarship application form on the online application.

Applicants to the GMAP and GBA should contact those programs directly for further information regarding scholarships.

  • Other named scholarships and fellowships have been established by benefactors of Fletcher. Unless otherwise noted in the fellowship description, all applicants requesting scholarship assistance are automatically considered for these awards. Applicants need only submit the required financial aid application included in the application for admission. No other forms are necessary nor are special applications permitted.

Outside Scholarships

Admitted students are encouraged to apply for scholarships offered through government agencies, private foundations and other sources. The Internet and scholarship guidebooks can be helpful in searching for outside scholarship information.

Applicants considering January enrollment should investigate outside funding opportunities well in advance to determine eligibility.

Applicants from the United States are urged to consult their undergraduate placement, counseling, and financial aid offices regarding fellowship programs that may support graduate study. International students should apply for awards offered by their governments or by governmental and private agencies in the United States or elsewhere.
