We offer no academic or athletic scholarships. Need is determined through an assessment of your family’s financial resources and ability to contribute toward the cost of your education. Reed meets the full demonstrated need of all admitted students. Since our funds are limited, we can offer financial aid to approximately 20 to 25 international students each year. In a typical year, 200 to 250 qualified international first-year and transfer applicants compete for these few awards. Reed will not admit a student who demonstrates need without offering a financial aid award. All offers of financial assistance include grants, work opportunities, and loans.
