Announcing Increased Scholarships!

October 9, 2018

studentsAt Cedarville University, we are doing everything we can to make our academically rigorous, Christ-focused education affordable for families. This week, we announced increased scholarships for incoming freshmen for fall 2019, and we wanted to be sure you were among the first to hear the news.

Academic and achievement scholarships now start at $6,000 a year and go all the way up to $20,000, and these scholarships are renewable for all four years (if academic requirements are met). These generous scholarships can be combined with other Cedarville or outside scholarships, as well as need-based aid.

A Cedarville education is one of the best investments your student will ever make, and we are serious about making it affordable for your family.
