We Can Do This, Together

We have awarded nearly $80 million in Amherst scholarships this year.  That鈥檚 money dedicated solely to meeting the financial need of our students.

Students leave Amherst with an extraordinary education, a long list of exceptional accomplishments, and the freedom to build their future without the burden of student loan debt. More than 75% of Amherst graduates in the Class of 2023 graduated with no student loan debt. 

This approach makes us distinctive. We are proud to say it also makes us a leader. Only a few colleges in the country can say what we can about financial aid.

Nearly 60% of our students receive financial aid. Our average financial aid offer last year was more than $68,000. So the majority of our students pay less鈥攐ften far less鈥攖han the cost of attendance.鈥
