Approximately 80% of incoming MAGES students receive some amount of merit aid. These awards generally cover between 12.5% and 50% of tuition for two years, contingent upon satisfactory academic progress. All applicants are automatically considered for merit scholarships by the admissions committee. Students do not need to submit additional information beyond the application for admission to receive a funding offer.
We encourage all prospective MAGES students to apply for extramural funding. Diligent searching can yield to opportunities that will fund most or all of a MAGES degree. Georgetown’s Office of Fellowships and Awards supports students and alumni in preparing competitive applications for prestigious merit-based scholarships and fellowships. Previous students have received funding from such prestigious sources as Fulbright-Schuman, the German Academic Exchange Service, and the Pickering Fellowship.
Every August, MAGES students may apply for research assistant positions assisting MAGES professors. Students may also apply to serve as teaching assistants for other Georgetown programs such as the Departments of Government and German.
Georgetown’s Student Employment Office provides opportunities for students to work at various campus locations, such as the library or the SFS Graduate Career Center.
