College with Great Financial Aid

If you have a quarter of a million dollars in liquid assets already allocated to cover four years of your son or daughter’s college education then you may not be worried about securing a generous financial aid package (although you probably wouldn’t object if it was offered). For everyone else, finding a school that is willing and able to make your child’s education affordable is of paramount importance. The following list of 56 colleges and universities that offer great financial aid will help you in this quest. Selection is based on the average amount of financial aid awarded, ratio of gift aid (grant, scholarships) to self-help aid (loans, work-study), students’ reported satisfaction with their financial aid package, and ability to meet the full demonstrated need of applicants. Unsurprisingly, the most selective and well-endowed institutions are also the most generous.
