Financial Aid

The financial aid package is need-based, with the aim of Making Yale education affordable to all students, regardless of their financial background. The scholarship can vary from a few thousand dollars to $60,000 per year.

Financial aid is based on the total cost of attendance which includes:

  • Tuition
  • Room and board
  • Books
  • Personal expenses

The reward is then calculated by subtracting expected family contribution from cost of attendance:

Meeting Demonstrated Financial Need

The financial aid package will meet 100% of a student’s Demonstrated Financial Need using two components:

  1. The Student Effort– which students typically fulfil with term-time work of about nine to ten hours per week and income from summer employment. Student Effort is the same for all students receiving financial aid. For 2016-2017 student effort is $4,475 for freshmen and $5,950 for upperclassmen.
  2. The Yale Scholarship – covering the full amount of the remaining balance.


Cost of Attendance – Expected Family Contribution = Demonstrated Financial Need

Students can also opt for on-campus jobs to cover their personal expenses.
