In addition to extensive need-based financial aid offered as part of the No Barriers program, UChicago also offers merit-based schoarships and specialized support to many students.
Wherever you're considering attending college, we also encourage you to apply for scholarships from outside organizations. One popular scholarship search resource is Fastweb. If you receive a merit scholarship from an outside organization, you must report it to UChicago's Office of College Aid as soon as you are notified of the award. These non-University scholarships will reduce the student contribution from summer earnings and term-time earnings and will not reduce your need-based aid award.
