Scholarships and Grants
Piedmont offers the personal and immersive benefits of a small, private college education at the cost of a large flagship public school.
Financing your college career is a collaborative effort here at Piedmont. Merit scholarships can assist with the overall cost of your college degree. Nearly 1,900 students, upon acceptance, received academic scholarships, grants, and part-time work-study aid valued at approximately $12.5 million in the most recent academic year.
Scholarships and grants are offered by many organizations, including national honor societies, local businesses, churches, and more. We encourage students to be proactive regarding outside scholarships.
