A Shared Partnership 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 students, their families and the College. Students invest in their own education by applying for scholarships and grants and by borrowing 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. I served as a research student and volunteered in their emergency department. I learned so much from both these experiences.”


Merit Scholarships Emmanuel awards merit-based scholarships to academically competitive applicants, with amounts ranging from $5,000 to full tuition. Students who submit a completed admission application by the February 15th application deadline are automatically considered for these scholarships and receive notification with their acceptance letter. Transfer students receive scholarship consideration if their admission application is complete and submitted by April 1st.

Catherine Johnson ’12 Neuroscience Member of Dr. Michael Jarvinen’s student-research group in neuroscience “Researching with Dr. Jarvinen has been an eye-opening experience. As an undergraduate, I have already participated in hands-on research, presented at conferences and even co-authored a paper accepted for publication. I am confident it has provided me with the skills to succeed at any career path I choose.”

By creating rich opportunities through internships, service learning and study abroad, Emmanuel College links academic offerings to exciting real-world applications while focusing on the development of the whole person. Through small class sizes, faculty-student research and top-notch facilities such as the Maureen Murphy Wilkens Science Center, we equip our graduates with the knowledge and skills to pursue their life’s work.

Jordan Coulombe ’12 Secondary Education Presidential Scholarship Recipient Honors Program Student “I have had countless opportunities to get involved on campus, serving as a student government association president, a resident assistant, an athlete, and a writing fellow among other things. Being awarded a Presidential Scholarship was a deciding factor in my attending Emmanuel. It allowed me to take advantage of this exceptional experience.”


Student Employment Students can gain valuable work experience and earn spending money through on- or off-campus job opportunities. Emmanuel provides on-campus jobs, including positions with academic departments, Athletics, Admissions, Residence Life and the library. Our Boston location affords students the opportunity to find off-campus jobs within a short walk from campus, as well as the chance to gain real-world experience through internships. Internship and job listings are conveniently posted on our Internships and Career Development website and a job fair is held on campus at the start of each semester.

Tony Carter-Hill ’11 Graphic Design Student Employee, Emmanuel’s Office of Marketing Communications “My hope was to gain more experience in graphic design while working in the Office of Marketing Communications. Yet it was the filming and editing projects that I enjoyed the most. Now I am planning to attend film school. I would not have realized my interest in this medium had it not been for this opportunity.”


Areas of Study With more than 40 majors, minors and concentrations to explore at Emmanuel College, students will flex muscles of both the mind and the heart as they develop the ability to acquire and evaluate knowledge, and the imagination to shape new ways of perceiving, thinking and creating. Here every class is taught by a professor, not a teaching assistant. Creating a deep, personal student/faculty relationship that begins day one. This is an engaged, energetic faculty with global connections in their fields. The classes are small; the horizon is huge.
