Financing higher education is an important concern for many students and parents. Stevenson offers a strong financial aid program to help qualified students meet their expenses. Financial aid is provided through scholarships, grants, loans, and employment. It is the goal of Stevenson University to provide financial assistance to as many students as possible who demonstrate financial need and who meet individual program eligibility requirements. Types of financial assistance available to students attending Stevenson University can be divided into three major categories: Stevenson University scholarship and grant programs, federal financial aid programs, and Maryland state programs. Qualified students interested in a military career may also be eligible to receive a scholarship through the University’s Reserve Officers Training Corps. Additional information on ROTC is available in the "Life at Stevenson" section of this catalog.
