Financial and Course Support
Tuition: $6,425; Room & Board: $3,612. The admissions process at the Marine Biological Laboratory is need-blind, meaning that we evaluate students on their merits alone, without weighing their financial situations. Financial assistance will be considered for those admitted students who are in need. Upon acceptance, students will be asked to complete a financial aid request form if they need assistance.
In 2019, 100% of those students in the Frontiers in Reproduction course who requested financial aid received some support. The amount of financial aid available from the MBL varies by course based on funding from grants and scholarships, but typically covers 70-100% of student need.
This course is supported with funds provided by:
Burroughs Wellcome Fund
National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, NIH
American Society for Reproductive Medicine
Society for the Study of Reproduction (Anita Payne Scholarship & Gates Foundation Scholarship)
The American Society for Cell Biology
Male Contraceptive Initiative (MCI)
Substantial financial aid is available to admitted applicants regardless of nationality. Scholarships are based on need and may cover the majority of course and travel costs.
