The Provost's Merit Scholarship

The Graduate Center, CUNY is very excited to announce a brand new scholarship for our Master of Arts in Liberal Studies program: the Provost’s Merit Scholarship.

For the first time, students who apply to the Graduate Center’s interdisciplinary M.A. in Liberal Studies (MALS) program can qualify for a merit-based scholarship that covers the equivalent of six credits for their first four semesters of study (at the in-state rate). This is worth 80% of in-state tuition costs for a 30-credit degree. All applicants for the Fall 2017 semester will be considered.

In order to be eligible, students must register for a minimum of six credits per semester and remain in good academic standing, as outlined in the Graduate Center Bulletin.
The scholarship cannot be deferred. If a student is an out-of-state or international student, the difference in tuition would be the student’s financial responsibility.
The scholarship will be awarded by the admissions committee of the M.A. in Liberal Studies Program. This scholarship will be awarded on the basis of academic merit, with the most deserving candidates being selected.

Apply now and be considered for the first MALS class eligible for the Provost’s Merit Scholarship! There is no separate application required to be considered for the scholarship.

September 2018 Update: As of Fall 2018, the GC has replaced the Provost’s Merit Scholarship with the Dean’s Merit Scholarship, learn more at the Master’s Scholarship and Financial Aid page.
