    Transcripts from all the universities, colleges, institutes of higher-learning, etc., you have attended
    Three evaluations or letters of recommendation. (If your evaluator prefers to submit using hard-copy, please offer him/her an evaluation form printed from the .pdf of the graduate application along with an addressed and stamped envelope.) Your evaluators should be able to testify in useful detail about your professional and research capabilities. One of these evaluations must be from a professor, two evaluations must be academic, and the final reference may come from employers or other professional or research contacts.

  • Financial Aids:
  • ESD assists its current and admitted students in obtaining financial assistance, but ultimately, the graduate student is responsible for finding and maintaining the financial support they need to sustain their MIT education. Most ESD graduate students are able to support their MIT education by working as graduate assistants throughout MIT. These jobs pay for tuition and a living stipend.

    Students are encouraged to secure funding from external sources. The deadlines for many fellowships are much earlier than the typical deadline for university applications. The Office of the Dean for Graduate Education (ODGE) maintains an extensive list of fellowships and grants. Student Financial Services is another resource for answering financial questions.
