On average, 85 percent of Ithaca's enrolled undergraduates receive some form of financial assistance, including institutional grants and scholarships and federal and state-supported grants, work, and loans. Some 75 to 80 percent of Ithaca's enrolled students receive aid directly from the College.
The menu on the left will help you navigate the various scholarships available within each of the College's five schools and the Division of Interdisciplinary and International Studies, as well as those scholarships available without regard to school affiliation, referred to as "Awards for All Students." All of these scholarships have been established by Ithaca College alumni, parents, friends, faculty, and staff -- as well as corporations and foundations -- to ensure that bright, talented students are able to afford the education they deserve.
In addition, merit-based awards for students with outstanding academic performance are also available. These funds have been established by Ithaca College to honor some of the College's exceptional faculty and administrators.
Very often, we find that the student who receives a scholarship today becomes a donor to a scholarship tomorrow. It's a chain of philanthropy that exemplifies the IC spirit.
