"There are truly no words to describe how much Wellesley's financial aid affected my life. If it weren't for the generous package I received from Wellesley, I would not have gone to this amazing institution." Consuelo '11
"This year I have no loans, which I never thought would happen. Wellesley never ceases to amaze me." Kaitlin '14
"Wellesley makes it financially possible for you to come, so even if initially it seems unfeasible, Wellesley will work with you." Adele '17
"Every time I had to work with SFS, they were professional and compassionate. I can't imagine receiving that level of assistance and personal attention elsewhere." Chelsea '11
"I never thought I would be able to afford a private institution! Working at SFS, I see first hand Wellesley's commitment to making sure everyone has the right to an education, regardless of price." Rocio '16
"Wellesley was more affordable than any other school I was accepted to, public or private. I've gone to the SFS office midday and spoken to a counselor within minutes, no appointment necessary." Dylan '16
