Potential funding options are available for students in the MS in Applied Economics Program

The MS in Applied Economics Degree is an important investment towards your future. All scholarship awards are merit based. However, Lehigh University does make several resources available to you in order to make it more manageable. Domestic students can learn more about funding their graduate education. International students can learn more about the financial guarantee requirements under Tuition & Expenses. Funding options for international students may be available from outside resources.

Generous scholarship awards are available and based on the strength of the application to the program. 


Lehigh Graduate Merit Scholarship

As a soon-to-be Lehigh alumnus, you may be eligible for a new Graduate Merit Scholarship that was established in 2023. This scholarship is awarded annually to a single, high-achieving student in the College of Business. It covers a year of free tuition, including one summer, two regular academic–year terms, and a winter term (if enrolled). Study abroad programs, including Lehigh Abroad programs, are not included.

Each year the College of Business nominates a student for the award. To be eligible for this scholarship, students must be accepted into a graduate program at Lehigh, and have a 3.75 GPA at the time of the program application.

Only early applicants will be considered for this scholarship. Students must receive an offer of admission by 2/12 (for fall start) or 10/13 (for spring start) to be eligible.


Yellow Ribbon Program

Lehigh University pays the remaining tuition that Post-9/11 GI Bill does not cover. Funding is available for all eligible students for graduate programs. Please visit Lehigh's Yellow Ribbon Program website for more information on eligibility, veterans education benefits, and more.


Financial Aid

Deciding to go back to school is a big decision, but figuring out how to pay for it doesn't have to be. The University’s Office of Financial Aid is committed to helping students attain a Lehigh University education, no matter your financial circumstances. Domestic students can learn more about funding their graduate education.
