Smith's Commitment to Financial Aid
We believe in making your M.S.W. affordable.
We have a deep commitment to access and affordability for all students qualified to join the Smith SSW community. We know that student success can be tied to financial security and we are dedicated to developing scholarship endowments and expanding resources which will provide field awards and living stipends.
There are many obstacles to completing a graduate degree; finances shouldn’t be one of them.
On average, about 80 percent of students qualify for aid, with aid packages ranging from $6,000 to $32,000. The average cost of tuition after Smith aid is about $12,600.
In addition to generous financial aid packages, Smith SSW will offer a living stipend of $300 per month (totalling $2,400 annually) during the field internship to any student who qualifies for aid.
The Council for Social Work Education notes that fewer Smith SSW graduates carry loan debt at graduation than students from any other school of social work.
We offer more than just financial aid.
Smith SSW also recognizes particular students who reflect the School’s values and commitments or present exceptional professional potential. A number of alumni sponsored endowments have allowed us to do just that! And thanks to their support, applicants may qualify for up to $37,000 in institutional aid per 12-month period.
Unless otherwise specified, no separate application is needed to be considered for these awards, you’ll be assessed for the awards during your application process.
