Merit Aid & Grants

A Private University Education You Can Afford

Everyone knows that good grades and test scores are the key to getting into the college of your choice. At Western New England University, they can also dramatically lower your bottom-line tuition costs each year you are enrolled.

Western New England University offers merit scholarships and grants, ranging from $25,000 to $30,000 annually or $100,000 to $120,000 over four years for students applying for the Fall 2024 term. These are awarded to full-time freshmen at the time of acceptance into the University. The University also awards need-based scholarships and grants based on financial need and previous academic achievement. There are no separate applications required for these scholarships.

One special opportunity for incoming first-year, full-time students includes the FIRST Robotics Scholarship. This scholarship is renewable each year students maintain their scholarship’s grade criteria, and it is awarded in addition to Merit Scholarships.

For full-time transfer students entering in the Fall 2024 semester, we award merit scholarships ranging from $20,000 to $30,000 (and an additional $2,000 for Phi Theta Kappa students) annually for the duration of the undergraduate study.

Explore Your Additional Aid Options

To finance their educations, students may also qualify for additional aid such as the University’s Sibling Discount, scholarships or grants based on financial need, student employment on campus (work-study), or loans or other financing. Our Financial Aid Counselors are available to discuss these options with students and parents, to help them make informed decisions.
