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.
Financial Aid at Pingry
Closing the gap...
Pingry seeks a student body that represents a broad range of economic situations. The goal of Pingry's financial aid program is to close the gap between the total cost of a Pingry education and what a family can afford. All Pingry financial aid is need based. We do not offer any academic, athletic or artistic scholarships.
In planning for the cost of a Pingry education, it is important to realize that a family, to the best of their ability, bears the primary responsibility for financing their child's education. The Financial Aid Committee seeks evidence that a family's commitment to their child's education is at least as strong as the School's.
Pingry would not be the same without the contributions of students who receive financial aid.
Grants vary widely to address the needs of families in different financial circumstances. Financial aid awards range from approximately $1000 to 100% of tuition and estimated fees ("total cost") for the 2019-20 academic year. Numerous factors contribute to the determination of a family’s ability to pay tuition including, but not limited to:
- general living and medical expenses
- number of dependents
- ages of parents
- number of children in tuition-charging schools
It is important to note that each case is evaluated individually and therefore families in the same income range may have vastly different overall financial circumstances and therefore receive different levels of financial aid.
