Financial Support

If you need financial support, indicate this on the application form. The Development Studies Program is unable to provide financial support to students, however many students are able to find funding through other means. Prospective students are encouraged to seek support through university departments, private scholarships, or government-sponsored funding. We will enter you in university-wide fellowship competitions for which you are eligible. Admitted students from developing countries may be eligible for one semester of MEO fellowship support. Most fellowship funds are awarded to students entering in the fall semester. We recommend that you:

  1. Write to international organizations and investigate fellowships and grants available from private foundations.
  2. Consider the possibility of obtaining support from your own university, your employer, or your government.
  3. Contact university departments about the possibility of obtaining an assistantship.
