Admissions & Aid

Grants & Scholarships

We have identified a number of grants that help defray the costs of college. We also offer a variety of scholarships to reward you for your accomplishments.


Federal & State Grants & Scholarships: The federal and state governments offer many financial aid opportunities for students. Please check out the options to see if you are eligible to receive more financial aid!


Merit Scholarships: Based on high school GPA and ACT/SAT scores for incoming freshmen. Transfer and International student merit awards are based on GPA.

Performance Scholarships: For students demonstrating a high level of accomplishment in art, dance, music, theatre or the Highland Arts (regardless of intended major) who audition or present a portfolio by March 1.

Other Alma Scholarships: Available for students meeting specific criteria or those interested in specific areas of study. Some of these scholarships are automatically awarded while others require an application.

Veteran’s Yellow Ribbon Program: Alma College participates in this benefit for eligible military veterans.

Outside Scholarships: These scholarships are not awarded by Alma College, but as we hear of opportunities that may benefit our students, we like to post them for you.

Please note: Be sure to review Alma College’s policies and procedures and the academic catalog as it is your responsibility to be familiar with situations that may affect your financial aid.
