Financial Aid

Northeastern University provides graduate assistantships and other financial support to a limited number of qualified full-time graduate students who have demonstrated high scholastic achievement. Some assistantships are promised at the time of acceptance; others may be awarded at any time. 

Regardless of your family income, consider applying for financial aid. We take many factors into consideration, including financial need, academic promise, and filing deadlines when determining our awards. It is the intent of the university to meet as much of a student’s financial need as available funds will allow. The only way to know if you will be eligible for grants, federal work-study, loans, and scholarships is to apply for aid.

Financial Aid and Awards

Department of Mathematics Financial Awards

Each year, the Department of Mathematics offers a limited number of Teaching Assistantships (TAs), and Graduate Student Scholarships (GSSs) to some promising full-time students. A Research Assistantship (RA) includes tuition and a stipend, and a recipient could be required to complete a project for a professor each semester. A TA includes tuition, a stipend and health insurance, and a recipient will be required to teach a basic undergraduate course each semester. For this reason, international students receiving a Teaching Assistantship must meet the minimum score requirements as noted above and should be able to speak English fluently. A GSS covers tuition only. Additionally, the University awards need-based aid to graduate students through the Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Work-Study, and Federal Stafford Loan programs. A limited number of Martin Luther King Jr. Scholarships are also available.
