College Scholarships And Grants For Twins

Paying for college education is not cheap and when parents have to pay for two at the same time, they will need all the financial assistance they can get. College scholarships and grants for twins are available in different forms and amount. What your twins can get will depend on the program requirements and your own financial needs. Twins usually enjoy a 50% discount for each of them or a “two for the price of one” enrollment program where they both enroll at the same time but pay for only one enrollee, including the tuition and other fees.

All the states will have one or two college or university that offers such type of college scholarships and grants for twins. Georgia has the Morris Brown College and Kansas has the Sterling College offering 50% tuition fee discount for both twins. In Ohio, your twins can enroll at the Notre Dame College or Lake Erie College to get also 50% discount. Wilson College in Pennsylvania however, offers a lesser 45% discount on both your twins’ tuition costs. Randolph College in Lynchburg, Virginia offers enrolled twins a small but still welcome 15% discount on tuition. One good thing with this school is that you don’t have to apply; you just need to enroll to take advantage of the discount offer.

If the particular one where you want to enroll doesn’t have such programs or any form of financial assistance for twins or multiple siblings, you can look for private organizations or institutions that do in the internet. One of those organizations is the National Organization of Mothers of Twins Clubs, Inc., which has counterpart local organizations for most states. You can search for your state’s local club by clicking on the “find a local club” link on the webpage. Illinois for example has a local club that was formed 1962. Twins and their mothers can get information, support and services, and a scholarship program for parents instead of the twins. Twinsburg, Ohio has the Twins Days Festival held annually in August where deserving twins can get $1,000 educational fund assistance.

Many college scholarships and grants for twins require excellent academic performance. Applicants must have 3.0 or above GPA, be active in extracurricular activities and are in real need of financial assistance. Two such programs include the Furlotte Twins Endowed Scholarship available the Eastern Michigan University and the Indiana University Layton Frazier McKinley Scholarship at the Kelley School of Business. Besides these usual scholarship grants, twins can also avail of other types of scholarships such as agriculture scholarships or art scholarships too.
