Funding Your Education
Financial assistance for your Berklee education is available from a variety of sources, such as federal grants and loans, state scholarship programs, private sources, student employment, and institutional scholarships. Funds from any single source are limited, so we encourage you to familiarize yourself with all your options. It is also important to note that all of grants, scholarships, and student employment are viewed as supplemental to your and your family's total contribution for your college education.
Below are the offices at Berklee that will help you along the way.
