诺布尔斯学院有优异奖吗?

不,诺贝尔奖不提供任何优异奖. All financial aid award calculations are based on a family’s demonstrated need. Since financial aid is granted annually, families must reapply each academic year.

诺贝尔奖如何确定经济援助奖?

Information from the 父母’ Financial Statement generates an estimated amount your family can contribute to educational expenses. We use this estimate as a starting point to help us make fair and objective financial aid decisions. 房屋所有权, 家庭规模, 在收费学校上学的孩子的数量, regional cost of living adjustments and other factors are considered in the evaluation of a family’s ability to pay.
