As a new mom to twin daughters, paying for multiple students in college at one time is something I think about all the time. I’m sure I’m not alone. As we discussed last week, merit aid (or scholarships) are available to students for a variety of reason – many of them unrelated to academic, athletic, or artistic prowess! Just as there are scholarships for tall and short individuals, there are a handful of colleges that currently offer special discounts or scholarships to siblings and multiples.
While not all colleges offer discounts or scholarships to multiples, I would highly encourage families to ask financial aid offices if they do offer such programs.
