Earning a graduate degree at the Mount is a worthwhile
investment that will benefit you for many years to come. Graduate
study at the Mount is made affordable through the use of federal,
state and private grants, scholarships and loans.
According to the College Board’s Trends in Student Pricing, the
typical earner with a graduate degree earns over twice as much as a
high school graduate. Over a lifetime, the gap in earnings between
those with a high school diploma and those with a BA or higher
exceeds $1 million.
The Federal Stafford Loan Program, Federal TEACH Grant, NYS
Tuition Assistance Program, NYS Senator Patricia K. McGee Nursing
Faculty Scholarship, NYS Math & Science Teaching Incentive
Scholarship and Veterans Tuition Awards are just a few examples of
funding opportunities for graduate study.
