Manhattanville College Scholarships – Updated Application Guide
Manhattanville College is a private liberal arts college offering undergraduate and graduate degrees, located in Purchase, New York. Founded in 1841 at 412 Houston Street in Manhattan, it was initially known as Manhattanville College of the Sacred Heart and affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church.
Today Manhattanville's mission is to “educate students to become ethically and socially responsible leaders for the global community”. The school moved to its current location in Purchase, New York, in 1952. Approximately 1,700 undergraduate and 1,000 graduate students attend Manhattanville.
The campus comprises 155 acres (0.63 km2), including the 46-acre (190,000 m2) Lawrence Wien Preserve, jointly managed by Manhattanville and neighboring SUNY Purchase.
Manhattanville College is known for its warm, welcoming campus community and its commitment to providing a personalized learning environment. Class sizes are small, and the student-to-faculty ratio is 12:1. Students can choose from more than 40 majors, 50 minors and concentrations, and pre-professional law, medicine, and business programs.
In addition, Manhattanville offers several interdisciplinary degrees that allow students to create their course of study.
What sets Manhattanville apart is the relationships students develop with their professors, who mentor them and help them achieve their goals both in academics and life beyond the classroom. These relationships are forged in an environment where faculty serve as advisers, coaches, and academic mentors.
Manhattanville also provides many opportunities for active learning through community engagement activities at all levels of study—from service-learning courses to community service projects to study abroad programs. Students also participate in research beginning in their first year when they work one-on-one with faculty mentors on various research projects.
Manhattanville College has a strong history of honoring students regardless of financial need for their academic achievements. We are dedicated to making the College accessible to students with low economic resources.
Manhattanville College is pleased to provide a range of scholarship possibilities to help students with the cost of attendance. Students will be advised of any merit award distinctions and other scholarship opportunities they may be eligible for at their acceptance decision: service-learning awards, honors, opportunity programs, collaboration programs, and academic-specific prizes.
