Other Financial Aid Sources
GSAS, SIPA, and Columbia's other graduate professional schools offer comprehensive programs of student financial aid. For further information on award descriptions, application deadlines and procedures, students should consult the appropriate graduate school admissions bulletins. Applicants are also urged to compete for the many national, regional and foundation fellowships, which are often larger than those granted by the University.
