Average Merit Aid

Merit aid is financial aid awarded to students on the basis of their academic or extracurricular accomplishments, rather than their financial need. The following table indicates the percentage of incoming freshmen receiving merit aid at 376 of America’s selective colleges, as well as the average merit award received. We also included the average Cost of Attendance (COA), a figure that includes tuition, fees, room and board, books and supplies, and personal expenses. For more information on how to position yourself to receive merit aid, visit our blog post on the subject.

Data was collected from each institution's 2020-21 Common Data Set, the most recent year for which such data is made available.

Table updated on October 2021
