Newhouse DC Scholarships and Financial Aid

In addition to Syracuse University tuition, Newhouse DC entails a program fee and housing costs. Additional costs to consider are books, entertainment, groceries, meals, personal expenses, supplies and transportation.  

When planning your budget for personal expenses, please remember that Washington is an exciting yet expensive city; the average movie ticket, burger or cab ride will be slightly higher than in Syracuse. 

Existing financial aid, grants and scholarships will be applied to your semester in Washington, D.C.  Limited additional scholarships are also available.  Read more below:
