Is it possible to simulate for students the eye-opening, transformative experience of international travel in a virtual format? Over Winter Break, Director of Global Education and Engagement Julia Dunbar and History Department Chair Dr. Megan Jones gave it a try.
Apply for Financial Aid
All families who feel that there may be a gap between the cost of attending Pingry and what they can afford to pay are encouraged to apply for financial aid.
The admission and financial aid processes are separate. However, there are times when “need aware” admission decisions must be made as the Admission Committees' decisions are weighed against available financial aid funds. Families who choose not to apply for financial aid (or do not complete the application process) during their child's admission process will not be considered for financial aid in future years unless they demonstrate a significant change in financial circumstances.
In order to receive priority consideration over newly admitted families, current families must adhere to and complete each step of the financial aid process by the appropriate deadline.
Any family who submits any necessary information after its due date will be considered for aid after those who have met all deadlines.
This decreases the likelihood that Pingry will be able to award a grant to a qualifying family. Beginning in November, the Financial Aid Office distributes financial aid application instructions by email, and will do so automatically to all families that currently receive financial aid.
It is imperative that families complete each portion of the financial aid application as thoughtfully and carefully as possible. The Financial Aid Committee bases awards on the information supplied by each family and assumes its accuracy. If a family knowingly presents any inaccurate or misleading information related to their financial aid application, the Financial Aid Committee reserves the right to deny financial aid for the current year and refuse consideration of future financial aid applications.
