Students enrolling at Cedarville University for the 2013-14 academic year are eligible for an increase in student financial aid. The new financial aid model was approved by the University’s Board of Trustees at a meeting in early September.
Under the new model, Cedarville will offer $23.4 million in financial aid and expand academic awards next year. Last year, Cedarville, which recorded its third consecutive record enrollment, awarded $21.8 million. University officials believe this year’s increase will allow more students to receive funding than in past years. Tuition for 2012-13 is $25,496.
Kim Jenerette, executive director of financial aid, shared that Cedarville is committed to affordability and wants to strengthen recruitment of top academic students.
“Cedarville is interested in rewarding families for the quality results of the applicant,” said Jenerette. “Through the improved scholarship program, students and families are in better position to receive financial aid so that their college experience becomes even more affordable.”
The new scholarship program added two new levels: a President’s Scholar Award ($12,000 annually) and a Faculty Scholar Award ($4,000 annually). In between, high-achieving students can earn $9,000 in the Provost’s Scholar Award or $7,000 annually from the Dean’s Scholar award. The University’s access grant, a need-based award will remain intact as will
the diversity scholarship. To learn more about Cedarville’s new financial aid program, visit Cedarville.edu/finaid.
