I receive lots of questions about financial aid, but can only answer the most basic. So, today I’m providing you a better resource.
Meet Flora Wharton, Director of Financial Aid here at the Bloomberg School.
Q: What types of financial assistance are available at the Bloomberg School?
A: The Financial Aid Office provides assistance with loans and work-study funding. Scholarships are awarded through our academic departments.
Q: How do prospective students find out about and apply for scholarships?

Q: Can applicants apply for financial assistance before they hear their admissions decision?
A: Yes, applicants may begin the application process for loans and work-study funding by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and listing our school code, E00234, so we receive their data.
Q: Can applicants apply for financial aid after the March 15 filing date?
A: Yes, financial aid applications are processed on a rolling basis.
Q: Is there assistance available for international students?
A: Yes, although limited, our academic departments do provide scholarship assistance to international students. Please visit our Funding Opportunities for a listing of available scholarships.
