Financial Aid

Working with you to make education affordable

 At WITS/MAALOT, we will work with you to make education affordable. Students who meet the admissions criteria of WITS/MAALOT are not denied admission because of financial need. Every effort is made to ensure that eligible students are able to receive the financial aid needed to attend WITS/MAALOT.

This first step in applying for any kind of financial aid is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

To learn more about the FAFSA application process, or to complete the FAFSA application, visit

When filling out the FAFSA form, you can list up to ten institutions. Students should list Gratz College as one of those institutions. The Gratz College Title IV School Code is 004058.

Financial aid is not available for the Israel Studies Abroad Program.

The FAFSA application should be filled out between October 1st and June 30th for the following academic year.



The State of Maryland offers needs-based and academic scholarships, grants, and awards. There are also scholarships for specific fields and populations. To learn about Maryland state scholarships, visit
