Scholarships and Financial Aid

There are a number of opportunities available to help make your MMS education a reality.

Merit Scholarships

Every admitted student is automatically considered for a merit scholarship. No separate application is required. Merit scholarships are awarded based on a candidate’s overall profile.

Criteria for selection:

  • Prior academic achievement
  • Demonstrated leadership qualities
  • Involvement in the community
  • Extracurricular activities

How will you know if you have received a merit scholarship?

  • Scholarship information will be included in your electronic admission letter.
  • There will be more information about your scholarship and its benefits in your admitted student portal.


  • For permanent residents and citizens of the United States, private loans and U.S. federal loans are available.
  • A no-cosigner international student loan may be available to non-U.S. citizens/permanent residents and non-Chinese students to help cover up to 80% of the Cost of Attendance.
  • Many countries provide loans or scholarships specific to their citizens. To learn more about such loan programs, download a list of funding options for international students. Please note that Duke University does not endorse any specific funding program.

Need-based Scholarships

In addition to the lowered tuition standard, all Chinese students from the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan are also eligible to apply for the need-based scholarships, which are offered based on family financial circumstances. Applicants will be given an opportunity to submit supplemental financial information after they are admitted to the program.
