Financial Aid and Scholarships

financial aid and scholarships

We are here to help each student and their family understand financial aid, scholarship, grant, and payment options which fit their unique needs.

Start with the FAFSA

School Code 001582

To apply for grants, loans, work-study and scholarships to our HBCU in Atlanta, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The FAFSA is used to determine your eligibility for federal, state, and Morehouse aid programs. Even if you think you may not be eligible, we encourage you to apply and to file your FAFSA online as soon as possible to avoid errors and to ensure faster processing.

Have questions about financial aid? 

Current and admitted students can get their basic financial aid questions answered each week by attending a virtual Financial Aid Thursday session. During Financial Aid Thursdays, you can join other students who are successfully financing their college education through a good foundational understanding of important areas related to financial assistance.

Summer Financial Aid

Spending your summer at Morehouse is a great way to stay on track for graduation.

You can also experience more of what Atlanta has to offer during the summer months, take a difficult class without the distractions of the regular academic year, or take a course that you’ve been eyeing for your enjoyment. But first, you may need to understand who is eligible to receive financial aid during the summer semester. Let us know that you want us to review your summer financial aid eligibility by submitting a financial aid application with our office.
