$3,289,816 - Amount of total 4-year merit aid offered last year to College Find's group of eligible students. Merit aid is a gift that most families are excited to receive. It validates all of the hard work their student put into school, or the hours devoted to a talent, community service or leadership skill. Choosing the right college is a critical component to receiving the best merit aid possible. College Find works diligently to match your student to schools that will value the ability and talents that your student brings to a campus.
