Can I Get Aid to Pay for Pre-College Program Tuition?

CounselorElizabeth Elkins

There are a number of ways to get financial aid and/or scholarships to help cover the cost of attending a pre-college program. For example, at Emory's Pre-College Program, we offer financial aid up to approximately half of the tuition cost. We recognize the need for scholarship funds for high school students interested in academic study during the summer. However, due to limited funds available, awards will be primarily based on need, and academic merit will be a secondary consideration. When applying for aid at any institution, your financial aid application will be reviewed and your academic record—including grade point average, test scores, and faculty/counselor recommendations—will be taken into consideration. Students should be aware that financial aid deadlines are often earlier than regular admission deadlines.

Many summer programs do offer tuition discounts and/or scholarships. The best way to find out whether or not it is possible for you to receive financial aid to attend a summer program is to find the program, check its website, then call the coordinator to ask about how the process works.
