Interim Scholarship Framework

 
When estimating how much of the Interim program cost will be covered by scholarships, students need to first assess whether they fall under the category of high, moderate, or low need. Students with no demonstrated financial need will not qualify for extra scholarship assistance.

Pell Grant Recipients:
  • Students receiving federal Pell grants
High Need:
  • Domestic students with a family income under $75,000
  • International students receiving at least $52,000 in grant/scholarship aid
Moderate Need:
  • Domestic students with a family income between $75,000 and $180,000
  • International students receiving between $35,000 and $52,000 in grant/scholarship aid
Low Need:
  • Domestic students with a family income between $180,000 and $300,000 
  • International students receiving between $25,000 and $35,000 in grant/scholarship aid

Based on need level, there are differing scholarship amount estimations for each program length. Below is the percentage of the total Interim Cost (the final column in the Cost Grid) that students can anticipate will be covered by scholarships. Keep in mind that these are general guidelines more than hard and fast rules.

Interim Programs:
  • High Need (including Pell Grant recipients): 40-50% 
  • Medium Need: 25-35% 
  • Low Need: 15-20% 

For example, the Classics in Greece Interim Program has a Total Cost of $6,250. A student of:
 
  • High Need can anticipate a scholarship amount of 40-50%, thereby reducing the total cost of the program to an estimated $3,125-$3,750.
 
  • Medium Need can anticipate a scholarship amount of 25-35%, thereby reducing the total cost of the program to an estimated $4,062-$4,687.
 
  • Low Need can anticipate a scholarship amount of 15-20%, thereby reducing the total cost of the program to an estimated $5,000-$5,312.

Students are automatically considered for scholarships and will be notified of scholarship awards in early May, before financially committing to the program.
