Tuition and Financial Awards

Northeastern University and the College of Arts, Media and Design offer qualified students a range of financial resources including scholarships, assistantships and a graduate tuition reduction for Northeastern alumni.

Scholarships and Assistantships

The College of Arts, Media and Design provides scholarships and other financial support to a limited number of qualified full-time master’s students who have demonstrated high scholastic achievement.

College of Arts, Media and Design Graduate Student Scholarships (GSS)

These merit-based scholarships are awarded on a competitive basis and are intended to support superior academic achievement at Northeastern. GSS awards are determined on the basis of departmental recommendations and are offered as a percentage tuition reduction.

Admitted students are automatically considered for GSS funding as part of the graduate program application review.  Submission of additional documentation is not necessary.

Tuition reductions typically range from 15% to 60%; however, may include up to full tuition coverage for qualified full-time master’s students.  The average tuition reduction is 25%.

Double Husky Scholarship

Graduate Assistantships

Assistantships are compensated as hourly pay and can take the form of research, teaching, and administrative roles within a student’s academic department. Students are eligible to apply for available assistantship positions after completing at least one semester of their graduate program.
