Our faculty highly value and work hard to recruit a diverse and highly qualified student body. We are especially interested in continuing to increase the number of minority students, mid-career professionals, and international students that we educate and graduate each year.
Our lively campus lifestyle is highlighted by student-inspired events, such as those listed in News and Events.
At the Division of Politics & Ecconomics, every student we feel is capable and suited to our programs is awarded a merit-based fellowship. This is one way we realize our mission of making high-quality graduate education more accessible to a diverse group of students. You will be contacted directly by a faculty member at the time of admission to discuss the details of your financial aid package.
Generous gifts to Claremont Graduate University and significant increases in faculty research funding mean a substantial increase in the number of stipends available to you as our student. You may also be hired as one of our paid teaching assistants, research assistants, or on-campus program assistants.
