    Financial Aid

    All graduate students admitted to RIETS receive a full tuition scholarship. Students admitted to the kollel programs may also receive a stipend and full housing cost remission for single students.

    Students admitted to kollel programs that entitle them to cash stipends and/or housing cost remission will be so informed in writing. Students who have not received letters of acceptance to the various Kollel programs should not assume that they are in a fellowship program.

    The Irving I. Stone Rabbinic Internship Program provides funding for internships. You can learn more about financial aid by visiting the Office of Student Finance.

    Housing

    Free housing is available for all single RIETS students in any of the kollel programs in the Morgenstern Dormitory. These dorms rooms are on campus and are leased for this purpose by Yeshiva University and paid for by RIETS.

    Married kollel members may apply for rental housing in the Laurel Hill apartments.

    Single non-kollel RIETS students may obtain dormitory-style housing at the Laurel Hill apartments or Strenger Hall for a $6,000 dormitory fee, the same that is charged to undergraduates in University housing.

    In the last few years, a significant community of young families has evolved around the RIETS campus and has upgraded student life. RIETS is committed to enhancing services and facilities for students and couples residing in the campus area and has recently constructed an eruv around the greater Wilf Campus area.
