Merit-based fellowships are the primary means by which the Batten School administers financial aid to its students. Admitted students need not submit any form of financial aid application to receive consideration for merit-based fellowships. The Batten School awards merit-based fellowships after a review of the materials submitted in the students’ application for admission.
- Bocock-Hitz Award
Students entering their first year class are eligible.
- Deloitte Fellowship Foundation Awards
Students entering their second year of the MPP program are eligible. Information regarding the application process for the Deloitte Fellowship Foundation awards will be shared with students in the spring of their first year of study in the MPP program.
The Batten School administers other funding programs to help defray the costs of summer internships and Applied Policy Projects. Several teaching and research assistantships are also typically open to students who wish to apply.
The Batten Student Council manages a Professional Development Grants Program to support student professional development activities that are non-course related.
Information on financial aid offered by the Batten School for the MPP program is available directly from the Batten School Office of Admission and Financial Aid.
