Each year, Sewanee invests more than $50 million of institutional resources through academic scholarships, need-based grants, tuition remissions, and institutional employment opportunities for undergraduate students. In August 2022, the average institutional funding received by first year students, through scholarships, need-based grants, tuition exchange or tuition remission is just over $32,000. 57 percent of the incoming class is eligible for need-based aid.
Investing in private education is a substantial commitment. Support from alumni and our endowment provides funding that allows us to meet the need of entering students, beginning fall 2020, with a combination of scholarships, grants, work-study and a federal student loan.
