Roanoke may cost less than you think

“I was awarded scholarships that made it possible for me to attend a school I had worked hard to get into, and there's a lot to be said for that hard work-Roanoke College recognized my achievement and rewarded me accordingly.”

Roanoke has a long history of rewarding students for their hard work in high school with merit awards. All of the sacrifices you made and hours you spent studying will be acknowledged. This year, Roanoke will award $36 million to its students in the form of merit-based scholarships. See what your merit award could be.
With several programs focusing not just on scholarship, but also on your other talents, you could be further recognized with additional funding. Audition for a music or theater scholarship, apply for an art scholarship, or compete for a fellowship that reflect your interests. Learn about additional opportunities.
New students applying to Roanoke, who file the FAFSA, receive an average financial aid package of about $26,000. With a wide range of additional grant, work and loan options, you will likely qualify for additional need-based assistance - even if your family has a six figure income. In fact, almost three out of four Roanoke students receive need-based assistance. Learn more about need-based aid.
