Boston Paying for an Emmanuel College Education An Investment in Your Future

Including Information on Scholarships and Financial Aid 2010-2011

Emmanuel College is committed to making a liberal arts and sciences education affordable for you and your family. There are many ways to pay for your college education. We are here to help you find the best plan for you. Together we can make an Emmanuel education possible.

A Shared Approach At Emmanuel, we know that a college education is a worthwhile investment that can reap great rewards. We also understand that financing a quality private education can be a challenge. That is why we believe that paying for an education is a partnership between the student, their family and the College. Students invest in their own education by applying for scholarships and grants and by borrowing with low-cost student loans. Parents contribute to their children’s education from savings, current income, tax credits and through low-cost parent loans. Emmanuel College supports our students by offering merit-based scholarships and need-based grant aid, and by participating in all federal and state funding options, including the Federal TEACH Grant and Yellow Ribbon Program. A college education provides graduates with dramatic advantages and opportunities. Over the span of one’s working life, those with a bachelor’s degree earn nearly double that of high school graduates, they gain access to a greater job market, and they open doors to new fields through comprehensive and interdisciplinary learning.

Jenny Saint-Aubyn ’11 Biology, Pre-Med Concentration Research Student, Viral Pathogenesis Division, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center “Emmanuel’s proximity to the Longwood Medical and Academic Area (LMA) encouraged me to take the initiative and contact Beth Israel in hopes of gaining experience. Now, I serve as a research student and volunteer in their emergency department. I’m learning so much from both these experiences.”

Academic Scholarships Academic Achievement Scholarship With amounts ranging from $7,500 - $12,500, the Academic Achievement Scholarship is awarded to students with SAT scores of 1100 (V+M) or ACT of 23 or higher and 3.4 cumulative high school grade point average. Dean’s Scholarship The $15,000 Dean’s Scholarship is awarded to students with SAT scores of 1250 (V+M) or ACT of 30 or higher and 3.5 cumulative high school grade point average.

Students selected for the Honors Program will be elevated from a Dean’s Scholarship to a Presidential Scholarship which is worth $17,500 up to full tuition. Our Honors Program is a four-year academic and co-curricular program that combines a rigorous, discussion-based curriculum with complementary opportunities such as cultural activities, faculty-directed research projects and service in the community.

Brian Anderson ’09 Interned with NASA while studying mathematics at Emmanuel Currently pursuing an M.S. in applied mathematics at the University of Massachusetts Amherst “When I came to Emmanuel, I knew I wanted to develop my interest in physics and astronomy.
