Our students receive over $40 million in financial aid each year in the form of loans, scholarships, grants, work, and graduate funding.
Johns Hopkins is committed to ensuring cost is not a barrier for those whose dream is to study medicine. Our Financial Aid Office works closely with students to manage the cost of education, as well as to provide top-notch financial guidance. Thanks to our generous friends and alumni, we have over 150 individual scholarship and loan account from which we are able to award 85% of students who apply with ample financial aid packages.
Tuition at Hopkins is highly competitive with other private schools and the average debt load for Hopkins graduates is actually lower than for students at other private schools and even some public schools.
In determining financial aid, Hopkins has two primary aims: to keep borrowing levels relatively uniform among students, and to ensure that scholarship funds go to those from the neediest backgrounds. A detailed overview of the financial aid application process can be found on the financial aid website. Please note that because of the availability of awards through the government's Medical Scientist Training Program, the guidelines for M.D./Ph.D. students are slightly different than those for M.D. students.
