79 Colleges With Full-Ride Scholarships

Want to know how much college will cost you?

We know that financial aid can be confusing—that's why we built our Cost Calculator to help you estimate the cost of college before you apply. Sign up now (it's all free!).

If you’re a high-achieving student, you may be looking to apply to some of the top colleges in the nation. Unfortunately, these prestigious schools can also be very expensive to attend. The cost of higher education is becoming increasingly prohibitive, and more and more families struggle to pay tuition. 


However, some colleges offer full-ride scholarships, meaning all costs of attendance are covered—including housing, meals, transportation, and books. Other schools offer full-tuition scholarships, meaning that they cover everything but cost of living. 


Keep in mind that these awards are usually recruitment tools for extremely competitive students who might otherwise enroll elsewhere. For that reason, full-ride scholarships become less common as a school moves up the ranks.


Wondering if the schools on your list offer full-rides? Here’s a list of 77 colleges where your education could be free. 


Note: While full-tuition scholarships aren’t technically full rides, we’ve included them in this list as another resource, as they still are substantial scholarships. Scholarships will be noted as full-tuition or full-ride in the description.
