Rise Together Scholarship

The Rise Together Scholarship is a need-based scholarship that, when combined with federal and state scholarships and grants, covers a student’s entire tuition costs and aligns with Finlandia’s mission of providing affordable higher education to all. The Rise Together Scholarship can be applied to the first two years of study at Finlandia. After the completion of 56 credit hours and/or an associate’s degree, students can easily transfer into a bachelor’s degree program and become eligible for the $10,000 Finnish Strong Scholarship, which can be renewed on an annual basis.

Eligibility Requirements

Working for You

Your enrollment officer will work hand-in-hand with you and your family to make sure you receive as many of these financial aid opportunities as possible. Finlandia’s wide range of scholarship opportunities can be combined with other financial awards such as the Pell Grant, SEOG Grant, Michigan Tuition Grant/Michigan Competitive Scholarship, Tuition Incentive Program (TIP), Federal Work Study Program and Guaranteed Direct Federal Loans. Those can combine for more than $30,000 in potential aid.

Did you know that over 50% of Finlandia’s students are eligible for a Pell Grant?

Tuition & Fees

All of the information you’ll need to know about Tuition and Fees to attend Finlandia University can be found under financial aid or by going to finlandia.edu/tuition. Thanks to our numerous scholarship and financial aid staff that work with each student individually to identify financial aid opportunities, the sticker price is very rarely the final price you’ll pay.
