If you are admitted to Taft, we are committed to making it work financially. We want to keep Taft a dynamic, diverse, and global community. We want to enroll the most outstanding applicants who show the greatest promise, commitment, motivation, and talent. To that end, 34% of Taft students receive a share of our $10.5 million dollar financial aid budget, which includes nearly 200 named and endowed scholarships. Some of these endowed gifts date back to Horace Taft’s day, while others are newly created.
