Scholarships recognize students’ abilities or involvement in activities. Scholarship funds do not have to be paid back. Earlham-funded scholarships include, but are not limited to:

  • Merit Scholarships
    These achievement-based scholarships are renewable for four years at Earlham, and are determined by the Admissions Office based on the application for admission. No separate application is required.

  • Quaker Fellows Scholarship
    This scholarship is available to students with an active interest in the Religious Society of Friends for the duration of their time at Earlham (with required re-enrollment each year based on academic standing).

  • Carleton B. Edwards Chemistry Scholarship 
    These achievement-based Earlham scholarships provided by a special gift are renewable for four years.

  • Rariden Scholarship 
    This scholarship is awarded to an Indiana student entering Earlham who is interested in pursuing an area within the visual and performing arts. The scholarship is renewable for four years.

  • The Heartland Region Scholarship 
    This scholarship will provide accepted students who live within 150 miles of Earlham with $2,000 each year for up to four years--that's an $8,000 scholarship, just for being our neighbor.

  • The Student of the Month Scholarship 
    Each month, we’ll nominate one Wayne County applicant to be our Student of the Month. In May, we’ll choose one of those students to receive the Student of the Month scholarship, worth $12,000 over four years.

Students must notify Earlham of any outside scholarships they are receiving from local, corporate or other sources outside of Earlham.
