Sewanee has expanded our financial aid program to meet the full demonstrated need of all admitted first-time, first-year students who qualify for financial aid.

Need-Based Aid

Applying for Need-Based Aid

To apply for need-based aid, applicants must submit the CSS Profile and Sewanee's Proof of Income form by their admission deadline. Only applicants who have their Applicant Status Page login information can view and submit the Proof of Finances form. We do not accept financial documents over email or fax nor do we provide CSS Profile waivers. The University does not cover any expenses beyond our cost of attendance. International students are eligible for work-study. For those who qualify, a small number of students are awarded a work study position. 

Not Applying for Need-Based Aid

Complete Sewanee's Proof of Finances form by your admission deadline. International students who enroll as first-year or transfer students without applying for financial aid will not be eligible for financial aid in future years. Only applicants who have their Applicant Status Page login information can view and submit the Proof of Finances form. 

Scholarships

Academic Awards

All applicants are considered for all academic scholarships automatically, regardless if they apply for need-based aid or not. There is no separate application. 

Global Scholars

Sewanee awards a limited number of Global Scholarships to admitted international applicants (non-US Citizens). Global Scholars are awarded the direct costs of tuition, room, board, and fees for four consecutive years of study at Sewanee. There is no separate application. A recipient should, however, budget approximately $5,000 of their own funds annually for books, health insurance, personal expenses, taxes, visa and SEVIS fees, etc. 

Klein Family Scholarship

The Klein Family Scholarship was established in 2007 with gifts by and in memory of the late Ms. Linda Klein, who was of Hungarian descent, for deserving students from Hungary. This scholarship is awarded to one Hungarian citizen who graduated from a Hungarian High School and is admitted to Sewanee. The award covers the direct costs of tuition, room, board, and fees for four consecutive years of study at Sewanee. A recipient should, however, budget approximately $5,000 of their own funds annually for books, health insurance, personal expenses, taxes, visa and SEVIS fees, etc. Applicants can submit the Klein application after they've submitted their Common Application to Sewanee. While applicants can apply under any admission round, their Common Application, supporting materials, and Klein application, must be submitted by January 8, 2021. Finalists for the Klein scholarship will be interviewed by the selection committee after January 8 and decisions will be out in late January.
