Financing Your Education

Students in Class

Financing your education depends on the Sackler Program in which you are enrolled.

PhD students in the Basic Science Division typically receive tuition scholarships and a stipend. However some students in this division self-fund their education.

Students in the Clinical Science Division are often engaged in fellowship training and thus the funding plan varies depending the activities of each trainee.

Students should refer to the page describing financial support options that apply to the program in which they are interested.

Student Loans

Eligible students may also participate in the Federal Family Education Loan Program to help pay for any unfunded living and educational expenses. The Tufts University School of Medicine Financial Aid Office assists Sackler students with the application process and can be contacted at or 617-636-6574.
