Our School provides a wide range of financial aid programs to attempt to lower education costs for our students.
Merit-based financial aid is given primarily through fellowships and graduate research or teaching assistantships. These are awarded competitively based on applicant and returning student credentials. All MCRP, MS-GIST, and Ph.D. applicants who submit applications by the announced priority deadlines are automatically considered for merit-based financial aid.
Need-based financial aid is awarded through the Georgia Tech Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid (OSFA). A separate financial aid application is required. The application process operates on a separate schedule.
