Student Finance Handbook

The Office of Student Finance has put together a handbook for all students. It contains up to date information and instructions. Please  click here to access this handbook.

General Information

The cost of financing a medical education can be daunting, but the office of student finance at Albert Einstein College of Medicine is available to assist you in preparing to meet it. Staff members are committed to clarifying the process of applying for financial aid so that you may explore various options that exist for funding your medical education. Read this information carefully and use it as a reference guide to help select from the numerous avenues of funding available to you.

Applicants to the M.D./Ph.D. (also known as the Medical Scientist Training Program — MSTP) and Ph.D. programs should note that this website is intended primarily for students enrolling in the M.D. program at Einstein. Tuition for students in these programs is remitted and a stipend is offered. Students in such programs are encouraged to contact the appropriate graduate division for information regarding tuition waivers and stipends. The office of student finance reviews grant applications for M.D. students only.

The office of student finance awards grant assistance on the basis of demonstrated financial need. In addition, a number of scholarships not based on financial need are awarded by the admissions office.
