Special scholarships are available for twins enrolled at the college level. Many colleges offer unique scholarships or tuition discounts to siblings classified as multiples to reduce the burden of tuition for children within the same family attending college at the same time.
Although each college varies, many institutions offer full-ride scholarships for one twin during the first year while alternating the scholarship to the other twin during the next year. In some cases, additional scholarships are available for identical twins. Due to the financial burden, twins are often eligible for financial aid scholarships provided they meet the income and financial need requirements. In addition, many private organizations, such as state and national mothers of twins associations, offer scholarships.
