At Sewanee we understand that an investment in private higher education is a substantial one for most families. Support from alumni and the University's endowment enables us to provide students with scholarships, grants, and other financial aid programs in an attempt to keep cost from being the primary factor in your decision-making process.
In 2017-2018, Sewanee will invest over $33 million of institutional resources to our undergraduate students through academic scholarships, need-based grants, tuition remissions, and institutional employment opportunities. We estimate 87% of our undergraduate population will receive institutional, federal, state or private gift funding in 2017-2018. In August 2017, 91% of entering freshman will receive funding from Sewanee in the form of scholarships, need-based grants, tuition exchange or tuition remission. Their average gift aid was $24,835. 55% of the incoming class is eligible for need-based aid.
