Program Tuition, Financial Aid, and Scholarship Opportunities

Two wooden spoons, one full of grain and one nearly empty.

The FSS program requires 49 credits of coursework at a tuition rate of $715 per credit. The table below is a quarterly tuition estimate for a full-time student in program. This estimate does not include costs for major medical and dental insurance, books, living expenses, or other costs incurred while in graduate school. These costs are, however, included in the estimated cost of the program for financial aid purposes and so financial aid can be used to cover the expenses.

Financial aid and scholarships

We realize that graduate school is a major financial commitment. All students enrolled in the Food Systems and Society program are eligible to apply for Federal financial aid. More information and application details are available on the Office of Student Financial Aid website.

Unfortunately, the FSS program is not able to offer substantial scholarships or assistantships at this time.

We encourage prospective students to seek outside funding that may be relevant to their areas. Below is a sample of food systems-related scholarship opportunities.
