Assuming a student remains eligible for financial assistance and her academic work satisfies at least the minimum standards, she may receive aid in her remaining years at Bryn Mawr. Awards are not automatically renewed; a student must reapply each year as the financial aid award must reflect any change in family circumstance.

The most significant changes in a financial aid award occur when:

  • student or parent income has increased or decreased
  • family size has changed from one year to the next
  • change occurs in the number of children in the family who are attending college 
  • self-help expectations (the amount earned through campus employment and the amount of federal loan expected) increase each year.

Bryn Mawr grants are awarded for a maximum of eight semesters.
