Student Financial Assistance: FY 2005

Financial support for degree-candidate students amounts to a half-billion-dollar-plus commitment by the University. These data, from fiscal year 2005, show that grants (institutional, federal, and other) totaled $275 million in that year, and were particularly important in the College and Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS). Loans, the principal funding source in the professional schools, totaled $210 million. And employment, chiefly teaching fellowships for GSAS students, exceeded $50 million.
