Each year, Sewanee invests more than $34 million of institutional resources through academic scholarships, need-based grants, tuition remissions, and institutional employment opportunities for undergraduate students. In August, 97 percent of incoming students received funding from Sewanee in the form of scholarships, need-based grants, tuition exchange or tuition remission. Their average gift aid was about $24,690. 52 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.
