UMW Prioritizes Affordability, Access With New Scholarship for In-State Undergraduates

UMWThe President and the Executive Committee of the Board of Visitors of the University of Mary Washington announced today the addition of a one-time scholarship to offset a 3% tuition increase for all in-state undergraduate students in the 2022-23 academic year, effectively keeping in-state undergraduate tuition at the same rate for four consecutive academic years. The board approved an increase of 3% for undergraduate annual tuition at the June 2022 meeting. In 2022-23, tuition for in-state undergraduate students is $8,938, an increase of $260. The university will provide approximately $700,000 in one-time scholarship funds to offset this increase, supporting Virginia students, while sustaining capacity for existing programs and staffing levels, funding new initiatives and employee raises, and addressing inflationary increases. This one-time reallocation of current funding is coupled with the state’s impressive investment in the University of Mary Washington, with key new funding for UMW’s arts, career building, faculty and staff salary increases, accessibility, affordability and museums.
