Definition of Financial Aid

Traditionally, the financing of a college education is the responsibility of the family. The George Washington University realizes that the cost of a GW education may exceed what a family can contribute. In such cases, GW provides a wide range of financial aid programs to help a family finance the cost of a GW education.

The financial aid programs at The George Washington University are designed to assist you and your family with financing the total cost of attending our institution. This includes grants, scholarships, loans, college work-study, and outside resources such as veteran's benefits and tuition benefits. Through a combination of federal and institutional financial aid, we hope to assist you in bridging the gap between what your family can contribute and the total cost of attending The George Washington University.
