Antioch College offers a variety of scholarships, including both merit-based and need-based assistance. The majority of scholarship assistance is directly provided by College alumni, through the Annual Fund, the Student Success Fund, endowed scholarships, and scholarships funded by individuals.
Funded by individuals
Antioch College Works Scholarships
The new Antioch College Works Scholarship addresses the problem of college affordability head on by making an Antioch College education accessible to students who could not otherwise afford it. The Scholarship covers full tuition for four years to students who qualify for federally subsidized Pell Grants* at any level (after any federal, state, and other scholarships and grants are applied).
Your support for the Antioch College Works Program will broaden access to Antioch College’s transformative educational experience. A gift of $100,000—payable over four years—will enable us to offer deserving students a full-tuition scholarship.
