As part of the State University of New York, the Cooperstown Graduate Program is one of the most affordable museum studies programs in the nation. The schedule of tuition and other fees explains the annual costs of attendance.
A range of financing options including low-interest student loans, need-based financial aid, fellowships, and student assistantships based on academic merit are available to students.
Fellowships and student assistantships, including some for minority applicants, are awarded through the Cooperstown Graduate Association, the State University of New York, and private foundations. All students requesting support receive some financial assistance.
