We know that financial stress can affect individual well-being and academic success. MIT can provide some assistance to graduate students experiencing financial hardships arising from a variety of circumstances. These resources are not loans, and do not need to be repaid. Funds disbursed are tax-reportable income and may reduce eligibility for educational loans.
Graduate students may be eligible for the following assistance programs:
- Guaranteed Transitional Support (for students who wish to change research advisors or groups)
- MIT Grant for Graduate Students with Children
- Graduate Student Short-Term Emergency Fund
- Doctoral Long-term Financial Hardship Funding
