Hamilton was founded more than two centuries ago as a school of opportunity, and never has that commitment been stronger than it is today. Our mission to prepare students for lives of meaning, purpose, and active citizenship starts with ensuring that a Hamilton education is accessible to the most talented students from around the world, regardless of their family’s financial background.

Our Financial Aid Promise

Hamilton meets the full demonstrated need of all students, and practices need-blind admission for first year domestic applicants, meaning that your family's ability to pay our tuition and fees will not be a factor in your admission decision.

Many Kinds of Support

Ensuring all students have equal access to all that Hamilton offers is our most enduring value. That’s why we have funds that enable you to conduct research with your faculty mentor, attend a national conference to present your findings, provide stipends for you to take on an unpaid internship, visit a museum, or catch a performance off campus, and more.

Career Preparation

Hamilton’s rigorous liberal arts education teaches students how to think, analyze, question assumptions, solve problems, and communicate ideas persuasively – skills that will get them noticed by employers and grad schools.

After Hamilton

Membership in the Hamilton community lasts a lifetime. Alumni provide our students with internships, job-shadowing experiences, and other forms of career advice. They visit campus regularly to recruit and speak in classes and welcome new graduates to cities all over the world.

The $400 million campaign marked the most ambitious fundraising initiative in the College's history.
