Financial Aid Instructions for the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research
Admissions decisions are made independent of financial aid considerations. Institutional financial assistance awarded directly by Bryn Mawr College is based on a combination of academic promise and financial need. U.S. Citizens and Permanent Residents may also be eligible for federal loan programs, which require completion of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Because institutional resources are limited, students are expected to use personal, family, and loan resources to the fullest extent possible.
Approximately 80% of GSSWSR students receive institutional tuition grants. Eligibility for grant assistance is based on academic promise per the information presented in the application for admission. Financial need may also be taken into account. Usually students are funded at the same percentage level of tuition for each year of study. You must reapply for the Social Work Grant and loan assistance each academic year.
