Financial Aid

A Helping Hand

Approximately 99 percent of all Ursinus students receive some form of assistance. For 2019-2020 Ursinus administered over $71 million in financial aid— over $47.5 million in the form of institutional scholarships and grants that do not have to be repaid. The funding for our institutional scholarships are partially underwritten by generous Ursinus alumni, friends, foundations, and corporations. Thousands of supporters are stepping up each year to help you afford Ursinus.
