Washington Public Diplomacy Program


Maxwell/Newhouse students pay Syracuse University graduate tuition plus an administrative fee of $400.  

Opportunities for financial assistance 

We recognize that the costs of living in Washington are higher than some other metropolitan areas and recommend that students take advantage of the multitude of outside sources of funding to help support their stay in Washington, DC.   

Both Maxwell-in-Washington and Maxwell's Department of Public Administration and International Affairs (PAIA) maintain a small budget to help students contend with the cost of living difference between Syracuse and Washington, DC.  You can apply for these financial awards through Global Programs Coordinator, Isaac Olson. 

In addition, students receiving Financial Aid should be sure to account for the higher cost of living in DC when submitting requests.
