A Single Award – Tailored For You

In order to simplify the financial aid process, Graceland awards a single primary institutional scholarship that considers your financial need, academic accomplishments, athletic success, and your involvement in extra-curricular activities such as art, music, theatre, communications, social change, and sustainability. Your Graceland scholarship will be tailored to your strengths and interests.
