At the graduate level, financial aid is largely decentralized, as available funds are managed directly by departments. Funding is usually available by departments to support doctoral students for the cost of full tuition, stipend, and health insurance for the duration of their time at MIT. Funding for master-level students is limited, so students may be required to seek out their own sources of funding or utilize student loans.
Office of the Dean for Graduate Education
The Office of the Dean for Graduate Education (ODGE) has compiled extensive information to help graduate students successfully manage their finances. The ODGE also manages several competitive fellowships and often solicits nominations from departments and students. For additional information please with the ODGE Student Finances website.
