External Funding

We strongly encourage you to research and apply for external funding to bridge the gap between any assistance that we may offer and the full cost of attending YSE.

    YSE External Funding Database

    For Current Students

    YSE maintains a database of external funding opportunities (CAS login required) related to the School's fields of study.

    For Prospective Students

    While some funding opportunities may require that you be already admitted to a program, we encourage you to apply nonetheless with a note to the funding organization regarding a mid-March admission decision from YSE.

    You will receive the user ID and password to access (IMPORTANT: this link was updated on 3/12/24 and you only need the password for access, not the user ID) a spreadsheet of opportunities after you have submitted your admission deposit. You will not have full access to the actual database from which the spreadsheet was exported until you matriculate.

    Yale Student Grants Database — Internal to Yale

    The Yale Student Grants Database provides a comprehensive, searchable list of student grants and fellowships funded and/or administered by Yale. Most of these are available from Yale's schools, departments, programs and councils and are open only to Yale students, while others are national competitions to which Yale nominates candidates. A few targeted grants are federally funded and open to non-Yale students.

    Scholarship Search Engines – General Opportunities

    Be aware that some of these opportunities have an application fee or other costs associated with them.
