Financial aid includes merit- and talent-based scholarships, need-based, state and federal grants, state and federal loans and the federal work study program. Typically, financial aid packages include a combination of these types of aid.

Furman scholarships

Scholarships are offered to students who demonstrate a strong ability to succeed based on their academic achievements, commitment to the community, passion for leading, or exemplary talents. Furman's scholarships recognize those students who show the potential and promise to make an impact in Furman's community.

Scholarships and grants may be renamed during the aid year to recognize benefactors, donors and friends of the University who have provided the funding for student financial assistance. The total amount of any Furman scholarship or grant will not change in the aid year unless a student's eligibility changes. Unless otherwise specified, scholarships and grants affected by this practice are not "add-on" awards; they are simply renamed.​​
