Scholarships and Aid
Our mission is to make a W&L education affordable for all admitted students. Our financial aid evaluation is not just a set of numbers plugged into a formula. We review each application and treat each family according to its circumstances. All First-Year applicants including domestic, international and undocumented students are eligible and encouraged to apply for our merit scholarships and university need-based grants.
- W&L meets 100 percent of demonstrated need entirely through scholarship, grants, and student employment.
- Last year, more than half the entering class received a W&L grant or scholarship with an average award of more than $50,000.
