An Outstanding Value

OK, you’re getting a sense of all that Carthage offers. What about the money part? We never want that to get in the way of a great education, which is why each year, Carthage awards more than $20 million in scholarships and grants — the kind of financial aid you won’t have to repay.

“Receiving the scholarships I did from Carthage completely changed my life as a first-generation college student. Receiving these scholarship awards gave me wings.” — Jenna Zeihen ’22

Keep Costs Down and Aim High

More than 90% of our students receive financial support. Combine that with a 4-Year Graduation Guarantee and a Carthage education stands well within your reach. U.S. News & World Report ranks us among the Best Value Schools in the Midwest.

To get things rolling, just apply for admission. Based on grades, students automatically receive merit scholarships when they’re admitted to Carthage. Future scholars, leaders, and performers can compete for even more, with over $2 million up for grabs in a variety of scholarship competitions.
