Tuition and Financial Aid
Cornell graduate tuition for the 2011-12 academic year is $21,592.50 per semester, or $43,185.00 for the year.
The Cornell Institute for Public Affairs provides some funding to more than 80 percent of its Fellows. The institute itself, however, is unable to provide anyone with full support. Program fellows often win fellowships from Fulbright, Truman, the World Bank, and other programs.
We encourage you to explore all available sources of external funding, including grants provided by current employers. Decisions on institute funding are determined on a rolling basis following admissions decisions.
