Funding & Scholarships

Knowlton graduate students receive a variety of financial support. The amount and kind of support varies by degree program and student. The primary sources of graduate funding are associateships, scholarships, and fellowships.

Decisions are made at the point of admission. No additional application is required to be considered. However, students who believe that they are eligible for a Graduate Enrichment Fellowship are encouraged to submit a diversity statement as part of their application.

The Knowlton Access Fund has been established to support initiatives that actively contribute to a more diverse and inclusive student body. The fund provides emergency or interim financial assistance to students who face unforeseen financial expenses or who lack resources to meet expenses after exhausting other forms of financial aid.

PhD Funding

City and Regional Planning makes four Knowlton PhD Awards in City and Regional Planning to incoming doctoral students every year. The Knowlton PhD Awards include a four-year commitment of financial support (a stipend and a tuition waiver) through a combination of fellowships and graduate research and teaching assistantships.

Travel Scholarships

Travel scholarships may be available to students who participate in Knowlton-based travel programs. Interested students should consult with the faculty director of the program in which they desire to participate to learn about funding options. Travel scholarships are applied to a student’s account for the term in which the program’s credits are earned.

ARTA Program

The Knowlton School's Architecture Research Travel Awards (ARTA) program was established to encourage independent travel and research initiatives of up to 30 days by Knowlton students from all degree programs. The ARTA program is made possible by generous support from the Columbus Foundation. In the fall semester following completion of their summer projects, ARTA winners present their work at the School.
