When thinking about the "price" of college, it’s important to note that no student pays the full cost of a Rhodes education.

The amount the college incurs to educate a student is about $53,966, yet the tuition rate is $42,914. In fact, when you look at the median institutional grant, fellowship, and scholarship aid awarded to students—$20,470—the median net price paid by students and families decreases to $19,014.

How can this be? Income generated by Rhodes′ endowment and gifts received from alumni, friends of the college, and foundations supplement the net tuition, fees, room, and board charges paid by families to make up the difference.
