​You worked hard. Reward yourself with scholarship money.

Scholarships are one of the best ways to take that sticker price and start slashing it. Scholarships are basically free money (other than all the hard work you put in to qualify!), meaning you don't have to pay them back.

Roughly 85 percent of all CMU students receive some type of financial aid or scholarships.

CMU students receive roughly $309 million in financial aid, more than $50 million of that in scholarships alone.

Scholarships are awarded to students for academic success in high school, displays of leadership, promoting multicultural awareness and more. Some are automatically given to those who achieve a certain GPA and ACT score. Others are awarded on a competitive basis.
