Scholarships & Aid

When evaluating talented students for admission to Richmond, we consider their academic achievements, their involvement in their community, their creativity, and their drive — but never their financial background. And, once an undergraduate student is admitted, we guarantee to meet 100% of their family’s demonstrated need.

This commitment to being “need blind” in admissions and meeting demonstrated need is a signature promise that sets Richmond apart. As we fulfill that promise, we also recognize that cost is a significant factor when students and their families are choosing their college or university home. We must ensure our Spiders have the peace of mind that they can afford a UR education regardless of their financial standing.
