Financial and Course Support
Tuition: $6,425.00; Room & Board: $3,276.00. 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 Microbial Diversity 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 in part by funding from Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the National Science Foundation, the US Department of Energy, the Moore Foundation, the Simons Foundation, NASA, Promega, and the Agouron Institute.
