Students can receive both merit-based scholarship and work study aid to attend Sewanee.
Over 60% of our festival participants receive some kind of financial aid to attend Sewanee.
Q) Can I appeal my scholarship offer?
a) Yes, and from time to time the festival can increase your award. However, in order to retain your position at the festival, you must deposit 14 days after being notified of your acceptance to the festival.
Q) If I recieve a scholarship from the festival AND an external award, how do I have that money applied to my tuition balance
a) Make sure that the scholarship is sent to the festival office, with a note that is should be applied to your tuition balance.
Q) If I end up getting more scholarship that I needed to complete my tuition balance, can I get a refund?
a) No, if you recieve a scholarship for more than your tuition balance, the difference will be deducted from scholarship you are recieving from the festival. In other words, students to the festival cannot have a positive tuition balance.
Payment plans are available.
