New England Conservatory awards institutional (NEC), federal, and state funding to eligible students. Federal and state eligibility is largely based on financial need. Institutional funding is awarded based on both a student's talent/merit and demonstrated financial need.

Additionally, the Conservatory makes a limited amount of its funding available for awards based solely on a student's talent/merit. Those applicants whose level of financial need might not otherwise qualify them for institutional assistance may be considered for a merit-only award. Please note: awards based solely on merit will not exceed 50% of tuition. Application requirements are the same for all applicants, regardless of the type of financial assistance requested.
