We meet 100% of every admitted student's demonstrated financial need through grants, scholarships and guaranteed campus work without the need for loans. Last year, more than half the entering class received aid with an average award of $51,383.00.

Washington and Lee awards both merit-based and need-based aid. All W&L merit scholarships are awarded through The Johnson Scholarship application, so only one application is needed.

W&L also provides need-based grants to students whose families demonstrate financial need. Eligibility for these grants is based on an assessment of the family’s income and assets.

"The Johnson Scholarship gave me the opportunity to go abroad, to develop relationships with professors who served as not only my teachers but also my mentors, and to represent the Generals in two sports arenas, and set me on a future path I am not only excited about, but also of which I am proud."
