Antioch College recognizes that the cost of education is a significant financial investment for most families. Antioch is committed to rewarding students and assisting families with demonstrated financial need.
Factors considered for scholarship and financial aid include the student’s proven academic and extracurricular achievements and family need.
Students who apply for financial aid must complete the Antioch College Financial Aid Application and the Antioch College Grant application every year. The application is sent electronically to applicants after they submit their admission application. Admission decisions are need-blind; financial information is not considered when deciding admission. The application is sent to current students via email. Priority award packages are made to newly admitted students who apply by the April 1, 2014, deadline and for current students who apply by the May 1, 2014, deadline. Applications received after this deadline will be awarded based on available institutional aid.

The Horace Mann Fellowship is available only to students seeking their first bachelor degree or who have not earned a degree beyond the bachelor's level.
Antioch College Grant: The College offers institutional aid in the form of a need-based grant, based on a student’s estimated financial need, to offset the costs of room, board, and required fees. An additional application is required to qualify for this grant. The application is sent electronically to all prospective students who have submitted an application and to all current students.
