IDMA: Financial Aid/Tuition

Foreign Language and Asian Studies scholarship applications are due Monday, February 13, 2017. Send materials to Patrick Fogarty, Department of French and Italian, 1328 Cathedral of Learning, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh PA 15260.  (The Department of French and Italian handles the applications for the IDMA in East Asian Studies.)

The dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences recently approved a few Tuition Reduction Scholarships for out-of-state students accepted into the IDMA program. That means recipients of this award, including international students, pay in-state tuition rates (the difference between the in-state and out-of-state tuition rates amounts to more than $10,000 per year).

This Tuition Reduction is valid for only one academic year but is renewable.

IDMA students are eligible to apply for a variety of scholarships and fellowships administered by the Asian Studies Center. We are pleased to announce that since the Fall of 2006, one full-tuition scholarship plus stipend has been awarded to an IDMA student enrolled in Japan studies. As with most financial aid, these awards are highly competitive.

Teaching assistantships are not available for this interdisciplinary graduate program.
