Funding Your Education

Both Teachers College and The Klingenstein Center offer various types of need- and merit-based financial aid and scholarships. 

Teachers College Financial Aid

Teachers College offers grants, scholarships, federal loans, and federal work-study programs. 
As part of the application for admission, students are able to request to be considered for scholarship funding. All applicants are encouraged to apply online for financial aid through the Teachers College Office of Financial Aid.

Klingenstein Center Scholarships

The Klingenstein Center works to ensure that as many qualified applicants as possible can attend our programs regardless of their financial circumstances. The Klingenstein Center for Independent School Leadership is made possible by the generosity of the Joseph and Esther A. Klingenstein Family Fund. The Center has enjoyed scholarship support from the Klingenstein Fund, the Altman Foundation, the Ahmanson Foundation, the Barnes Foundation, the van Otterloo Family Fund and the Benedict Foundation along with the Scholars Fund, supported through donations by alumni and friends. To gain access to the Klingenstein Center funding, you must complete the Teachers College Financial Aid application.

Living in NYC

Cost of Attendance
