Sarah Lawrence College offers a variety of financial aid awards to assist with the cost of attendance, including need-based scholarships that may cover part of tuition, and a number of highly competitive fellowships that vary by degree program. Most do not require a separate application and are awarded at the time of admission to reflect recognition of previous accomplishments or strong fit with the culture and values of the program.

More than half of Sarah Lawrence’s graduate students work on campus in a variety of positions such as research assistants for undergraduate faculty or assistants in the writing program. Graduate students also work in the College library, the Campbell Sports Center, and various offices on campus. Residence Life hires some students as Graduate Hall Directors. The residence life positions include a room on campus.

Students who are interested in applying for college need-based scholarships or federal loans should follow the directions under Applying for Financial Aid. Parent information is not required on the FAFSA.
