The BU Scholarship Assurance

The BU Scholarship Assurance enables you to plan for the cost of your entire degree. The Boston University aid offered in your first year is guaranteed for each of your undergraduate years.

Eligibility for BU need-based scholarship aid is established and confirmed in the first year when you file the CSS/Profile™ and the FAFSA. After the first year, the Profile™ is not required. To apply for federal and state financial aid including grants, loans, and work-study you must file the FAFSA annually.

BU merit-based scholarship recipients are selected according to the criteria for each award.
