Financial Aid and Student Support for MFA Students
The School of the Arts awards over $10 million in student aid each year in the form of tuition scholarships, paid service positions, teaching appointments and institutional loans. Over 80% of Film MFA students receive support from the School to help meet the cost of attendance.
In addition, the School of the Arts works closely with the University’s Office of Student Financial Planning to explore other options, including federal work-study and loans.
Columbia University and the School of the Arts also offer a number of resources regarding on- and off-campus employment, and outside scholarships and grants.
For instructions regarding financial aid applications and deadlines, along with more information about funding your education, please visit the Financing Your Degree page.
MA in Film Studies students are ineligible for need-based institutional aid from the School of the Arts. In rare cases, MA in Film Studies students may be compensated for teaching assistant and research assistant positions.
