Olin College of Engineering
Due to the current economic situation, Olin has modified its commitment to providing a full-tuition merit scholarship to all accepted students — at least temporarily. Beginning with the 2010-11 academic year, these scholarships will be reduced by 50 percent for new students. For details see the college website: www.olin.edu.
