December 14, 2016

Piggy bankBaldwin Wallace University is featured on Money Magazine’s new nationwide list of “91 Great Colleges That Give Every Freshman a Scholarship.”

Money “scoured the data” on schools that first make the quality cut for the annual “Money Best Colleges” rankings to develop an honor roll of quality schools that give generous scholarship support to nearly all incoming freshmen.

Money warns prospective students and families to be wary of taking the highest scholarship without regard to quality or net cost.

MONEY magazine logo“Research has found nearly 40% of students are so dazzled by a prestigious-sounding scholarship that they’ll choose it even when they get in to higher-quality schools that are likely to be less costly over the long term — because of speedier graduation rates, for instance, or ultimate earning power,” the magazine's editors wrote.

At BW, 98% of first-year students receive financial aid. Merit scholarships range from $12,000-$16,000 and are renewable for up to four years. BW also offers a four-year graduation guarantee. Visit bw.edu to find out more.
