Princeton currently ranks as the least expensive at $49,069 per year.

    how do we go on about getting the scholarships?

    • Elizabeth Goldman says:

      None of the Ivy League schools offer scholarships. There are no merit scholarships of any kind — not even for recruited athletes. They Ivies are, however, very generous with need-based aid. Fill out the FAFSA form and speak to the Office of Financial Aid at the appropriate institution(s). Families that earn less than $100,000, and even families with higher earnings and multiple children, will often receive full-aid packages which cover everything — including room and board, study abroad programs . . . Middle class families with more than $100,000 in earnings often receive very substantial financial assistance as well. On average, Ivy League students graduate with very low levels of outstanding loans. Admissions are also “need-blind.” So, if your child needs financial aid, don’t worry, if he/she is qualified, it won’t affect his/her admission chances. Waivers for the application fee are also readily available for those who qualify.
