Sewanee scholarships come from over 200 endowed scholarship funds, annual gifts, remissions of tuition, and additional amounts budgeted from the University’s operating funds. As previously mentioned, many of these scholarships are awarded on the basis of calculated need-based eligibility, and applicants are automatically considered for these scholarships as part of the normal need-based financial aid award process.
APPLYING FOR SCHOLARSHIPS
Freshmen who wish to apply for scholarships should do so through the Office of Admissions. The deadline for applying is December 1. Selections are made on a competitive basis. A limited number of awards are available to non-first-year students and are awarded at the discretion of the individual academic departments. Wilkins, Benedict, Baldwin, Franklin County, Chancellor's, and Regents Scholars may seek reinstatement through the Associate Dean of the College.
APPLYING FOR NEED-BASED SCHOLARSHIPS
All new and returning students must annually apply for need-based aid by completing both a FASFA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and the University's own need-based aid application. Details on both forms are available through the Office of Financial Aid and on the University's website.
