ANDRAH Merit Scholarship
This scholarship is a $10,000 tuition waiver designed to recognize the exceptional talent of an incoming MFA student in Ceramics. It is available to one student on a competitive basis each year.
In an effort to encourage a diverse population of graduate students, SUNY New Paltz offers a one-year out-of-state tuition waiver to all incoming MFA students who are not residents of New York State. This allows non-resident students to pay regular in-state tuition rates, saving approximately $9,800 a year. MFA students must seek and be granted New York State residency during their first year to continue to receive the in-state tuition rate. This program is available to international students who are not US citizens and enrolled in one of our MFA programs. These students may receive the MFA Scholarship rate for two years without applying for New York State residency. See Tuition & Fees Chart for rate.
