Need-Based Scholarships

We invest in our community with need-based scholarships—grants that don’t need to be paid back.

Need-based scholarships make up the majority of our financial aid offers, so our students can fully participate in our community without the burden of debt. We believe in the value of diverse perspectives to stretch our minds and strengthen our impact, which is why we’re making it financially possible for talented students from all backgrounds to explore life at Hopkins.

financial circumstances shouldn’t limit your potential

If your family demonstrates you can only pay part of college costs, or none at all, we cover the rest. Follow our step-by-step instructions to apply for need-based scholarships and work-study opportunities.
