We offer generous financial assistance to students with demonstrated need as determined by the HUC-JIR office of Financial Aid.

More than 80% of our student population receive this generous assistance throughout their years of study. In addition to our tuition scholarships, which covers over 50% tuition coverage, there are also opportunities to receive full scholarships and in some cases additional stipends through our various in-house scholarship programs starting in your second year of studies.

Financial aid comes in two forms: tuition scholarship grants from the College-Institute and access to Federal Stafford Loans.


Applying for Financial Aid

To apply for an HUC-JIR tuition scholarship you must fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the award year you are attending using our school code. For best results, please wait until the calendar year you are planning to attend. International Students must also fill out the CSS/Financial Aid PROFILE®, an online application that helps locate financial aid from sources outside of the federal government.
