Tuition Grant Program


Beginning with the 2022-23 academic year, the Swarthmore College Tuition Grant program offers dependent children of full-time benefits eligible employees a tuition grant of up to 40% of Swarthmore’s tuition and fees.  Dependent children of part-time benefits eligible employees will be eligible for a tuition grant of up to 20% of Swarthmore’s tuition and fees. The grant may be applied toward tuition and fees (excluding room, board and/or books) when an eligible child is a full-time student at an accredited college, university or technical school.
