Veteran benefits

More information on specific veterans’ benefits can be found from Student Financial Services.

MIT administers veteran benefits, including Chapter 33 or Post 9/11 VA benefits, much like other external funding sources such as fellowships or scholarships, and thus, the same policies apply. Funding received from these benefits may affect your financial aid by first reducing the amount of your student contribution if applicable. After that, it may reduce the amount of any MIT department funding received, such as a Research Assistantship, Teaching Assistantship, and/ or fellowship (external or MIT internal) to bring the total funding received in line with a department’s standard funding rate. Each graduate program has their own funding policies, so be sure to contact your department’s graduate administrator for more details.
