A Transformational Experience at Hampshire

Financial and Academic Support

Baldwin Scholars receive a scholarship that fully meets the cost of attending Hampshire for one year, including tuition, room and board, and other expenses.

After the Baldwin Year

Most Baldwin Scholars complete the program successfully and continue their studies at Hampshire College. Scholars who continue at Hampshire apply the coursework completed during the Baldwin years to fulfill the College's academic requirement. Once they complete their Baldwin year, scholars receive generous financial support.

I felt like it was impossible to fail, that I was supported on all sides and that there were people who really cared about my education.
