Types of Aid


Denison’s financial aid packages are very generous — and we offer more than most public universities. Each year, we make our outstanding private four-year liberal arts education affordable for hundreds of students and their families. Through a combination of institutional grant aid funded by Denison, federal and state grant aid, work study, and manageable loans, we provide financial aid packages that meet the demonstrated need of our students. Separately, merit-based scholarships are available to reward excellence and help make the extraordinary value of a Denison education affordable.
