Emory Advantage

Emory University is committed to making education accessible to all qualified students. Through the Emory Advantage grant program, eligible students with a demonstrated financial need will be offered institutional grants in their financial aid packages instead of need-based loans.

All first-degree undergraduate students enrolled in Emory College of Arts and Sciences, Oxford College, Goizueta Business School, and the School of Nursing who apply for need-based financial aid will be considered for this program. Your eligibility will be determined once you have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and CSS Profile. There is no separate application for Emory Advantage.

The Emory Advantage grant will appear on your financial aid package. Emory Advantage recipients may also be offered Federal Work Study based on eligibility.

If you are a returning student, we require you to update your FAFSA so we can evaluate your eligibility for Emory Advantage. Emory Advantage grants are generally offered to full-time students only; however, final-semester seniors who are permitted to underload are eligible to receive prorated grants.
