Scholarships: Without the scholarships I received, I would not be at samford. Samford is really good at giving out scholarships to help with school.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Financial aid is always a pain, it seems like, but it went fairly smoothly with Samford. I have enough scholarships and government grants to cover 3/4 of the total cost of attendance, not including loans. The school offers work study opportunities but the pay is not usually applied to tuition, they think it's a good way for students to have some spending money every month, but it is possible for you to apply it to tuition and other costs.

One tip that definitely helped me out a lot is that Samford offers the possibility of making what they call a financial appeal to the Office of Financial Aid. You basically fill out a form explaining why you can't afford what the school is asking you to pay based on the financial aid they have given you. There's also a form to fill out to compare the scholarships that Samford has offered you to the scholarships other universities have offered you, as a way of asking them to increase the amount of any academic or leadership scholarship. Also, you should definitely apply for their leadership scholarship, even if you think you haven't done much leadership or extracurricular activities. Just make a resumé. You could get $2,000 for it and every little bit helps.
