Need-Based Financial Aid (Grants by Institution)

Lower-income families are often assisted by federal grants to cover the cost of college tuition. Those in the middle-class on up typically have to rely on institutional awards—that is, need-based grants from the schools themselves. Some colleges are better able and/or more willing to meet a student’s demonstrated financial need than others. Two simple metrics can be helpful in determining how generous an institution is: the average percentage of need met and the average need-based grant award.

Data was collected from each institution's 2020-21 Common Data Set.
