Like most MA programs, OHMA does not offer internal grant-based funding.

We offer a limited number of merit-based scholarships and competitive research fellowships of up to $5000/year. Fellows will be paid to conduct and process interviews for the Center for Oral History Research. For more information, please review our Tuition and Aid page.

Many of our students qualify for work study funding and are hired at the Center for Oral History Archives or other campus locations, such as the Digital Humanities Center. We also make consulting opportunities on outside projects available to our students. 

Many of our students find financial aid from federal loans, private sources, or companies and we encourage all students to look for such support. We also encourage you to speak with Columbia University's Financial Services Center to learn more about the aid for which you are eligible. For more information about each of these sources visit the GSAS Financing Your Education webpage.
