When I first stepped on campus I honestly felt like it was home. People were so nice to me. They opened doors for me. They're all smiling. When I saw the students they were all accepting of each other, asking each other questions. And they made me actually feel like I was a Curry student even though they knew I was still a high school student.

Institutional Programs

Curry provides our students with millions of dollars in funding each year. Curry offers both merit aid (scholarships) and need based aid (Curry grants). Scholarships are generally awarded to acknowledge prior academic achievement or promising academic ability; character and citizenship, community service, or leadership. Scholarships, also known as gift aid, are a type of financial aid, that does not need to be repaid. *Please note - students who receive Merit Scholarships will not be eligible to receive either the Family Discount or the Alumni Discount.*

Merit Based Scholarships are awarded by the Curry College Office of Admission to entering full-time, first-year and transfer students who have completed a college preparatory or higher curriculum. All students are considered at the time of acceptance for Merit Based Scholarships. There is no additional application required. For more detailed information, please review the listings of Merit Based Scholarships. All scholarships are credited to the student's tuition account approximately one week after the end of the add/drop period for the semester. Renewal of these funds annually is contingent on meeting the academic requirements set forth in the student's notification letter at the time of acceptance to the College and continuous, consecutive full-time enrollment in a degree-program.

Named Scholarships are provided through the generosity of donors and are administered by the Curry College Office of Student Financial Services.  These scholarships are awarded to full-time students annually by the appropriate department.
