Financial Aid Process

Boston Conservatory at Berklee offers institutional scholarships and accepts federal, state, and private forms of loans, grants, scholarships, and work-study. To apply for federal and some states’ aid, students should fill out the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov by the March 1 priority deadline (send by February 15).

Conservatory scholarships are based primarily on the merit of the audition. We also consider the needs of the institution and, if we have the FAFSA, the student’s financial need. Students who are awarded the Conservatory scholarship must fill out the Scholarship Fact Sheet to accept it. The FAFSA and the CSS Profile are not required for scholarship consideration.

The Financial Aid process outlined here applies to all undergraduate, graduate, and international students. Music Education and M.F.A. in musical theater students should review detail information provided for their programs.
