Financial Aid

Support talented students from socioeconomically diverse backgrounds

Your gift to Financial Aid makes Carleton possible for students from all walks of life—removing barriers for outstanding students who deserve a place at Carleton, regardless of family income.

With college costs rising nationally while household incomes remain flat, families today need more aid than ever to bridge the gap.

Examples of your Financial Aid gifts at work include:

  • Staying true to our promise to meet 100 percent of demonstrated need for all admitted students
  • Drawing talented students from all income levels
  • Enabling all students to partake in the full range of opportunities at Carleton
  • Keeping faith with enrolled students whose financial circumstances change
  • Avoiding saddling our graduates with unrealistic levels of debt
  • Scholarships and grants to meet the added expenses of students studying abroad
