UMW Admissions Announces Scholarships, Fall Open Houses

Last month, UMW landed on two national college rankings, 'Washington Monthly' and 'The Princeton Review.'

Students rush past Lee Hall on Campus Walk.

The University of Mary Washington has expanded scholarship opportunities this fall, with awards for first-year and transfer students, whether they choose to submit test scores or take advantage of UMW’s test-optional alternative.

“Our merit program is just one way Mary Washington is able to lower out-of-pocket costs for enrolling students,” said Dean of Admissions and Associate Vice President Melissa Yakabouski. “Dollar for dollar, UMW continues to reward academic excellence and meet the financial needs of students and their families, with nearly $40 million awarded in 2022.”

Students are automatically considered for merit awards based on the information included in their application. Merit scholarships are awarded at the point of admission, and students receive notice within their official offer letter and packet.

First-year scholarships are available for degree-seeking applicants and range from the full-ride Washington Scholars for in-state students and Alvey Scholars for out-of-state students to subject-specific scholarships and merit awards. Read more.
