We do everything we can to make sure that a Hope College experience provides great value at an affordable rate. This focus has earned the College recognition as a Best Value by Kiplinger's Personal Finance and Forbes’ Top Colleges, and inclusion in such books as Colleges That Change Lives and Putting Students First. Our students tell us that the financial aid they received made their dream of attending Hope possible. In its simplest form, eligibility for need-based financial aid can be boiled down to college costs, family contribution and financial need.
Hope honors talented artists in the areas of creative writing, dance, music, theater and the visual arts. Auditions are open to all prospective Hope students, on any instrument or voice, regardless of intended major. Music scholarship recipients are required to take lessons and participate in music department ensembles. For voice students, an accompanist will be provided if needed. For instrumentalists, applicants can either audition unaccompanied, or they can bring their own accompanist. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship providers website.
