Student Support

 

 

 

Our culture promotes a commitment to service and real-world participation that teaches our students to lead effectively and imaginatively. 

We’ve strengthened our commitment to financial aid to ensure that all students have the opportunity to find their #OnlyatGW moments.

With the help of gifts to Power & Promise for Student Aid, GW has significantly increased the amount of financial aid offered to undergraduate and graduate students to more than $297 million this academic year.
