Montserrat is a small, private college that specializes in art and design.  The benefits of attending a small, private college are clear. Students receive a personalized educational experience, during which they work closely with faculty who serve not only as educators, but also as mentors. While attending a private college can be perceived as an expensive endeavor, it’s important to know that at Montserrat, this type of educational experience can be affordable. If Montserrat is the college that is the right fit for you, the ‘sticker price’ shouldn’t deter you from applying. With Montserrat’s merit and need-based awards, the cost of attending Montserrat is often comparable to that of attending a state supported college. All applicants receive merit scholarship consideration. The vast majority of applicants receive a merit award. These range from $5,000 to more than $15,000. In awarding merit scholarships, our Admissions Counselors look at the whole student. We reward artistic talent, academic strength, as well as attitude and the potential for leadership on campus. Students who complete the FAFSA are most often also eligible for need-based awards. Students demonstrating financial need receive additional financial assistance, often including a need based scholarship. In general, financial need is addressed through a combination of Montserrat scholarships, federal grants and loans, and state and private grants and scholarships. Montserrat also offers monthly tuition payment plans. Our Student Financial Services office is dedicated to helping families afford Montserrat.  Please feel free to contact our office throughout the process at sfs@montserrat.edu or 978.921.4242 ext. 1174.
