Our competitive funding packages consist of scholarships, fellowships, research assistantships and loans. Funding packages vary by degree program. Depending on the degree program, we consider merit and financial need as independent factors in determining awards. 

Dartmouth does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or status as a disabled or Vietnam era veteran in its programs, organizations, and conditions of employment and admission.

All awards are contingent upon the availability of funds, continued satisfactory performance, and satisfactory academic progress.
