Financial Aid – M.S. Students

Tuition and other fees are set by the Duke Graduate School, for the latest information please see their web page. [ext. link]

Note that our program provides substantial scholarship support to many MS students. In recent years, admitted students who do not have external scholarships have been offered an average scholarship of $13,400. That amount may vary in future years. The scholarship amounts are given on a competitive basis, so that the level of scholarship varies depending on the strength of a given applicant.
