F&M Financial Aid Facts

We Offer Need-Based Aid Only

In the fall of 2011, Franklin & Marshall College joined a select group of colleges and universities that focus their financial aid resources exclusively on need-based financial aid. Therefore, we do not offer any academic or merit scholarships.

How We Determine Financial Need

We use information from the CSS/PROFILE , FAFSA and federal income taxes to determine your family contribution and create your need-based aid package. We define financial need as the difference between the cost of attending F&M and the amount your family is expected to contribute.
