Financial AidWheelock College offers a number of scholarships and grants to undergraduate students, ranging from grant funds awarded based on the eligibility of your FAFSA (Federal Application for Federal Student Aid) to Wheelock merit scholarships based on specific criteria. Outside scholarships (from companies, nonprofit organizations, high schools, and other entities) have their own application processes and eligibility requirements. In addition, eligible students can access a variety of federal and state scholarships and grants to help make college affordable.

If you are an international student (non-citizen), financial aid is generally limited to institutional merit scholarships provided by Wheelock College and outside scholarships obtained by you through private sources. Need-based scholarships are part of financial aid, which is unavailable to international students.

Wheelock College Scholarships and Grants

First-Year Students

Wheelock College offers the following scholarships and grants to incoming first-year students. All students, including international applicants, are automatically considered for these awards if submitted by the priority deadline (there is no separate application for merit scholarships).

  • Merit Scholarships: Awards range from $14,000 to $19,000 and are based on the overall application for admission. Factors considered include your prior academic performance (including whether you demonstrated improvement and/or challenged yourself), writing ability, activities/community engagement, work/volunteer experience, and letters of recommendation. Standardized test scores are not considered in our merit scholarship decisions.
  • Fenway Grant: Wheelock is committed to partnering with families to make a private education affordable. First-year students that do not qualify for a merit scholarship may be eligible to receive a $12,000 Fenway Grant.
  • Lucy Wheelock Scholarship: First-year US Citizens and Permanent Residents from outside of Massachusetts who have never attended college before will also receive a $2,000 per year Lucy Wheelock Scholarship.
  • Wheelock College Legacy Scholarship: The Wheelock College Legacy Scholarship is available to new students (starting Fall 2016) whose immediate family member (parent, grandparent or sibling) received a Wheelock College bachelor's or master's degree. The total award is $2,000 per year and may be combined with additional scholarship awards. The Wheelock College Legacy Scholarship will be awarded upon acceptance.

Please note that eligibility for scholarships is based on the application materials we have on file at the time the admissions decision is made.
