Financial Aid

Due to generous support from the Amar Foundation, Simon Foundation, James Irvine Foundation and Walton Family Foundation, the following fellowships are available to significantly reduce the cost of tuition:

Available Fellowships

  • Diversity Fellowships available to both part-time and full-time students, which greatly reduces the cost of the program. For our purposes, diversity includes, but is not limited to, culture, socioeconomic background, race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disabilities, religion, and life experience.
  • Resident Fellowships for students to spend a year in residence at HTH and earn their M.Ed. at a significantly reduced tuition rate.
  • International Student Fellowships for those applying through the F-1 visa program to receive a reduced tuition rate.
  • New School Creation Fellowship for educators from the following urban centers who wish to enroll in the one-year full-time program and return to open a new school are eligible for a tuition fellowship with living stipend: Atlanta, Boston, Camden, Denver, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Memphis, New Orleans, New York, Oakland, Oklahoma City, San Antonio, and Washington, D.C.

All fellowships are based on merit, need, and diversity. Fellowships are awarded along with the offer of admission. If you are interested in applying for a particular fellowship, please note this in your application cover letter.
