Deadlines

To be considered for Erikson scholarships, need-based grants, and/or federal loans, you must submit the FAFSA and the Erikson supplemental financial aid application each academic year. We do not require a separate application for Erikson fellowships, scholarships or need-based grants.

For priority consideration for fellowships, scholarships and need-based grants, you should submit financial aid application materials by March 1 (August program start) or October 1 (January program start). We will continue to award financial aid to students who apply after this date; however, awarding of fellowships, scholarships and need-based grants is contingent upon funds available after the priority deadline.
