Finance Your Degree

Diane Bonin Diane Bonin, Director of Tuck's Financial Aid Office, offers valuable advice and insight into financing your MBA.

Tuck admits a highly qualified and diverse class of students without regard to their financial circumstances.

Once admitted, students are responsible for carefully considering their options for financing their MBA education in the context of their personal and professional goals.

The financial aid office works with admitted students to identify potential sources of financial assistance including scholarships, fellowships, and loans. To avoid taking on excessive levels of debt, students should save income from work, reduce consumer debt, and plan to use personal resources, gifts, loans from family and friends, and external scholarships or sponsorships in addition to bank loans to cover the cost of attendance.

Tuck offers an array of scholarships and fellowships. To be considered for a scholarship award based on merit or need, students must complete the Application for Tuck School of Business Scholarships by the published deadline. Scholarship awards are communicated with the admission decision.

Once students are admitted to Tuck, they can apply for educational loans by the published deadlines. The financial aid office determines their eligibility for loans based on a variety of factors, including cost of the program, the student's ability to contribute, debt levels consistent with successful repayment, and the school's availability of funds. The school reserves the right to limit or decline institutional and international loans on the basis of a student’s overall debt burden, credit history, or other relevant factors.

Getting a Tuck MBA is a major investment decision but it is a long-term investment with high returns for your future.
