Complete this section only if you wish to be considered for MLBS financial assistance (this is not at all related to any other financial aid award you may have). Funds are granted to help defer tuition, housing, and/or dining costs while taking a class at MLBS. Awards are made while funds are available and are based on academic record and financial need. A statement of need and letter of recommendation are required. Financial aid recipients will be called upon to assist with tasks and special work projects each week in Station buildings or on the grounds. Weekend projects may be required. Work load varies over the summer, but efforts are made to accommodate class schedules. Review of applications for financial aid begins March 15.
