More College Affordability with New Grants & Scholarships

With continuing economic pressure on colleges, students and their parents, new students at Geneva College have some new options for Grants and Scholarships that reflect the school’s continued focus on making education affordable.

For the upcoming academic year, Geneva has increased the amounts of their academic scholarships and introduced or improved several new grant programs and scholarships. The end result is that a Geneva education becomes more affordable for many more students.

A first-year applicant is automatically considered for an academic scholarship of between $12,000 and $16,000 per year based on performance in high school and scores on SAT/ACT tests. That could mean up to $64,000 toward a four-year education.  Transfer students can benefit from the Tower Scholarship of $12,500 per year, if accepted.

To receive priority consideration for Geneva College grants & scholarships, prospective undergraduate students should apply for admission and be accepted to Geneva before December 31.
