Financial Aid and Scholarships

FINANCIAL AID
    The University’s effort to maintain an active and equitable program of financial assistance applies fully to all Roger Williams University students enrolled in Roger Williams University sponsored and approved or affiliated semester or year-long study abroad programs.
 
   Students interested in Study Abroad Programs should meet immediately with a financial aid advisor to complete the necessary forms other than the FAFSA and to submit signed copies of their federal income tax form and that of their parents.
 
   All payment options described in the University Catalog may be applied to Study Abroad programs. Questions may be directed to the Office of the Bursar at (401) 254-3520.
 
   No student placed on academic suspension is eligible for financial aid. Students receiving financial aid who do not meet the minimum requirements as outlined under the Rate of Progress in the University Catalog shall not be awarded financial aid.
 
   A student must be an accepted, full-time matriculated Roger Williams University day student in order to be considered for financial aid.
TUITION REMISSION AND TUITION EXCHANGE PROGRAMS
    Most of the Education Abroad Programs are not eligible for tuition remission and tuition exchange.  Please check with the Spiegel Center for any exceptions. Students may apply for Financial Aid and determination will be based upon demonstrated need and academic performance.
ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP, GRANTS AND AWARDS
    Roger Williams University academic scholarships, grants and awards are applied to nearly all of the RWU and approved affiliate study abroad programs.  Students are encouraged to check with the Spiegel Center for current exceptions.  Academic scholarships, grants and awards are not available to students who are not full-time, matriculated Roger Williams University students.
