W&L Grant Aid by Parent Income

Many factors contribute to determining how much aid a student receives. Our Grant Aid by Income table below estimates expected contribution based on household income. The chart below shows, based on the last incoming class, what each family was expected to contribute based on household income.

Keep in mind that these are sample cases, and each student who applies for aid will be reviewed on an individual basis.
