Bottom line

The University of Mary Washington provides students with a number of options to help off-set the costs of their education. Through the Office of Financial Aid, undergrads are privy to a comprehensive program of loans, grants, scholarships and workstudy opportunities. This funding comes from a variety of state, federal and private resources. UMW also maintains their own institutional merit scholarships. For example, each year they award the Washington Scholarship to eight in-state students with stellar academic credentials. This scholarship covers the full cost of tuition. Not to be left the behind, the Alvey Scholarship is awarded to two out-of-state academic all-stars. Further, the UMW Friends of the Orchestra offers a full-tuition scholarship every academic year to a freshman who participates in the UMW Philharmonic Orchestra. Of course, there are plenty of merit-based scholarships available to the broader student population as well. Indeed, the school doles out a handful of renewable awards in amounts of up to $5,000 annually. Finally, in total, UMW administers more than $26 million in financial assistance, including education loans totaling $19 million.
