Congratulations! If you represent a college or university that is included in this list, please collect your seal below.

I grew up poor in Mississippi and was an ok student who blossomed late academically, so a full-ride scholarship was not in the cards for me. Luckily, many colleges and universities in my area offered financial aid packages that included scholarships, grants, and other forms of financial assistance that students do not need to repay. These packages allowed me to receive an education and pursue a successful career without accruing large loan debt amounts.

This list below ranks the best U.S. colleges and universities in terms of available financial aid packages that support students whose family income falls below $48,000 per year. Our goal is to create an article that students can use to identify which schools best provide the financial assistance students need to receive an advanced education.

  3. University of North Texas
