Scholarships and Fellowships

  • Merit-Based Scholarships

    Applicants to the MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (MA TESOL) program are considered for several competitive merit-based scholarships. Our scholarships cover a percentage of tuition, are renewable, and are open to both part-time and full-time students.

    Paul D. Coverdell Peace Corps Fellowship Program

    Returned Peace Corps volunteers applying to The New School’s MA TESOL program are eligible to receive graduate fellowships through the Paul D. Coverdell Fellows Program. Coverdell Fellows have been drawn to the university by our emphasis on social responsibility, our excellent master’s degree programs, and the unique environment at The New School. Scholarships of up to 50 percent of tuition are awarded. You must submit the Peace Corps Description of Service with your application in order to be eligible for these competitive scholarships. Learn more about the university's partnership with the Peace Corps.

    Organization of American States

    The Organization of American States (OAS), in partnership with The New School, offers financial support for the MA TESOL program to qualified candidates from the Americas. Students who enter through the OAS program and receive an OAS scholarship or a Rowe Fund loan will also receive a 25 or 50 percent tuition discount from the university. Interested applicants should apply through the OAS webpage. If accepted by the OAS, applicants are automatically admitted to the MA TESOL program.

    Graduate Assistantships

    Enrolled students are eligible to apply for on-campus graduate assistantships. Openings are posted on the New School Opportunities page.
