Grants and Scholarships

Grants and scholarships are funding sources that do not need to be repaid. They tend to fall into three categories:

  • Need-based programs – Eligibility for and funding amounts offered under need-based grant and scholarship programs are based on your and your family's financial resources.

  • Merit-based programs – Eligibility for merit-based grant and scholarship programs are based on non-financial factors, such as your academic performance in high-school.

  • Tuition benefit programs – You may be eligible for a tuition benefit program through your parent's employer, a religious organization, or other similar affiliation.

Note that not all sources of aid are available for second degree studies.

If you receive a financial aid package from Emory, your package will likely include a combination of federal, state, and Emory institutional grants and scholarships. Select an option below to learn more about the various types and sources of financial aid available to undergraduate students:

Through the Emory Advantage Program, we offer non-repayable grants to first-degree undergraduate students with a demonstrated financial need that is not otherwise covered by federal, state, institutional, or private grants and scholarships.
