Every opportunity. Every student.

A landmark gift by Michael R. Bloomberg ’64 reflects the university’s mission by supporting need-blind admissions and meeting 100% of demonstrated need with no-loan financial aid packages

Removing barriers

A commitment to transformative opportunities.

Our financial aid philosophy is anchored around a simple approach: Enrolling the brightest minds. Period.

Students who are primed to thrive on a campus where diversity of thought drives our academic culture shouldn’t be limited by their family’s ability to pay.

Inspired by Mr. Bloomberg’s own experiences as a Hopkins student, this gift acknowledges that access to a world-class institution provides the most talented students the opportunity to engage and collaborate with others who share their passion for inquiry.

This moment in the university’s history also speaks to the conviction that all students, from all backgrounds, should have access to the opportunities, resources, and intellectual community where groundbreaking ideas are created. Those opportunities abound on our campus, and we are proud to support our students—during their time here and after graduation. With the potential to graduate debt-free, equipped with an education that opens doors, our students will have the freedom to boldly explore ways to apply their knowledge and talents. They are changing lives and impacting the world, much like Mr. Bloomberg has done for them.
