To assist students with the cost of attendance, Manhattanville College is proud to award students a variety of scholarship opportunities. At the time an acceptance decision is rendered, students will be notified of merit award honors and additional scholarship opportunities for which they may qualify. Among these are awards for service-learning, honors, opportunity programs, partnership programs, and academic-specific awards.
