The Art Department awards merit-based fellowships that fund up to the full cost of tuition for entering students. The Dean’s Art Fellowship is a select number of full-tuition fellowships given annually in the fall to the most competitive applicants in the MFA program. In addition to the Dean’s Fellowship, partial-tuition fellowships are awarded to over 90% of our applicants. The department also offers a substantial number of Teaching Assistantship (TA) positions that allow students to gain hands-on teaching experience and receive a departmental stipend each semester.
Merit-based fellowships are awarded to students based on the recommendation of each academic department. Fellowships are offered based on enrollment in 15 units each semester. If enrollment changes, fellowships are adjusted. CGU is committed to honoring the awarded level of fellowship support throughout a student’s time in coursework as long as Satisfactory Academic Progress is maintained.

All schools at Claremont Graduate University participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program.
The Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program (Yellow Ribbon Program) is a provision of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008. The program allows institutions of higher learning (degree granting institutions) in the United States to voluntarily enter into an agreement with the VA to fund tuition expenses that exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition rate. The institution can contribute up to 50% of those expenses and the VA will match the same amount as the institution.
You may be eligible if:
- You served an aggregate period of active duty after September 10, 2001, of at least 36 months
- You were honorably discharged from active duty for a service connected disability and you served 30 continuous days after September 10, 2001
- You are a dependent eligible for Transfer of Entitlement under the Post-9/11 GI Bill based on a veteran’s service under the eligibility criteria listed above.
The Post-9/11 GI Bill pays up to the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition and fees. You may have tuition and fees that exceed that amount if you are attending a private institution, graduate school or attending in an out-of-state status. If you are enrolled at a Yellow Ribbon participating institution and the tuition and fees exceed the highest public in-state undergraduate tuition or fees, additional funds may be available for your education program without an additional charge to your entitlement.
Institutions that voluntarily enter into a Yellow Ribbon Agreement with the VA choose the amount of tuition and fees that will be contributed. The VA will match that amount and issue payment directly to the institution.
