SCHOLARSHIP and Grant Opportunities

With a variety of scholarship and grant opportunities available, Hiram College is an affordable option. Check out our offerings below. Applying is easy.

Hiram College offers affiliation grants and merit scholarships that are renewable for up to four years. The admission staff considers all applicants for merit scholarships and are selected in a holistic manner for academic excellence, extracurricular distinction, personal motivation, and character. A separate application is not required.


Step 1: Fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online at as soon as possible after October 1st. Include Hiram’s FAFSA code, 003049, on your FAFSA to ensure Hiram receives your information.

Step 2: Apply for admission. A separate scholarship application is not required.

Step 3: Wait for the results. We mail an all-inclusive financial aid packet that will include your award notification on an ongoing basis.


Take a look at the direct cost of attendance below to help with your financial planning.

When completing the FAFSA, please be sure to list HIRAM COLLEGE’S SCHOOL CODE (003049) so that Hiram receives your information from the U.S. Department of Education.  You should apply for financial aid as soon as possible AFTER October 1st of the year you wish to start at Hiram College.  For example, if you plan to start at Hiram College for the Fall 2018 semester, you would complete your FAFSA anytime after October 1, 2017.

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
