To maintain our institutional independence, we accept no state or federal funding—even indirectly in the form of student grants or 贷款. Our financial aid packages are thanks to the gifts of hundreds of thousands of generous donors nationwide.
Why is Hillsdale College’s independence so important?
Hillsdale was the first American college to prohibit by charter admissions discrimination based on race, 性, 或宗教. Standing on principle continues to define us.
By refusing even one penny of federal or state aid for grants, 奖, 贷款, 或奖学金, we free ourselves from educational regulation and programs imposed by the government. That means Hillsdale College must replace millions of dollars every year in student financial assistance and must raise monies for all college activities and programs from the private sector. 幸运的是, independent-minded donors who share our principles of integrity and self-government support everything we do—from financial-aid assistance to one of the largest college lecture series in America.
