Office of Financial Aid Vision Statement
The Amherst College Office of Financial Aid continues to serve as leaders in the principles and administration of financial aid, by elevating the needs of students, and by delivering limits with grace and respect for diverse cultures so that all students and families feel heard and seen. The College’s cultural diversity requires a practice of continual learning so that equity in policies reflects culturally relevant practices. Staff balance a student-centered culture with the responsible stewardship of all financial aid funds. We emphasize and model the partnership in funding, as students, families and the College work together to develop a financing plan.
