Scholarships and Grants

HWS offers generous scholarships and grants based on academic achievement, talent, leadership and financial need. Annual scholarship and grant amounts are divided evenly between the fall and spring semesters. All scholarships are renewable on an annual basis provided that the recipient maintains a minimum 3.0 GPA and upholds Community Standards after two semesters of enrollment at the Colleges. Financial need is not considered in granting scholarship awards. However, if you know you will need financial aid and you think you might qualify for an HWS scholarship, you are encouraged to apply. All merit-based scholarships require a scholarship application. Please complete this application and forward any additional materials to the Office of Admissions by Nov. 15 if you are applying for a scholarship as an Early Decision candidate, by Jan. 15 if you are applying as an Early Decision II candidate or we have extended our deadline to Mar. 1 if you are applying as a Regular Decision candidate. Students receiving HWS scholarship or grants will receive those funds for a maximum of 8 semesters unless a 9th semester waiver is granted. To be considered for a 9th semester, please contact the financial aid office at (315) 781-3315 or finaid@hws.edu. More Information:
