Admissions decisions are made independent of financial aid considerations. Grants awarded by Bryn Mawr College for studying at the Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research are based on a combination of merit and/or financial need. You may also be eligible for federal loan programs, which requires 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. You must reapply for the Social Work Grant and loan assistance each academic year.

The federal government offers four income-driven repayment plans that may help lower your federal student loan payments.
