Funding Your Education
Both Teachers College and The Klingenstein Center offer various types of need- and merit-based financial aid and scholarships.
Teachers College Financial Aid
Teachers College offers grants, scholarships, federal loans, and federal work-study programs.
All applicants are encouraged to apply online for financial aid through the Teachers College Office of Financial Aid, which serves as an application for both Teachers College and Klingenstein Center funding.
Klingenstein Center Scholarships
The Klingenstein Center works to ensure that as many qualified applicants as possible can attend our programs regardless of their financial circumstances. The Klingenstein Center for Independent School Leadership is made possible by the generosity of the Joseph and Esther A. Klingenstein Family Fund. The Center also enjoys scholarship support from the Klingenstein Fund, the Altman Foundation, Barnes Foundation, van Otterloo Family Fund and the Benedict Foundation along with the Scholars Fund, supported through donations by alumni and friends. To gain access to the Klingenstein Center funding, you must complete the Teachers College Financial Aid application.

Cost of Attendance
Tuition in the Full-Year Program is charged per credit and can vary according to credit load and advance credit standing. Current information on Teachers College tuition, fees, and cost of living estimates is available on the Teachers College Office of Admission website.
