With attainable merit-based institutional and entrance scholarships, a plethora of Finlandia-only scholarship opportunities, unique tuition initiatives aimed at easing budgetary concerns, and a financial aid team that goes above and beyond to help each student, Finlandia strives to make college affordable for all. In fact, FinnU was ranked #12 by U.S. News & World Report for Social Mobility in 2020. Learn how we’re a leader in these areas below.
We have partners and donors all over the world helping to make Finlandia University affordable for future students. Our scholarship offerings include a new $4,000 grant available to students graduating from high schools in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and an up to $4,000 scholarship for first-year students who are residents of Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois or Minnesota with at least a 2.25 grade point average. We have many options for making a Finlandia education affordable, check out our full scholarship list to learn more.
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.
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.
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.
