The Princeton Review selected University of Richmond for its 2014 list of 75 best value private colleges, praising its combination of academic opportunities of a large research university and advantages of a small liberal arts college.
Publisher Robert Franek said the best value schools offer "outstanding academics and affordability, either via their comparatively low sticker prices or generous financial aid awards to students with need."
Cindy Deffenbaugh, director of financial aid at Richmond, said that this year, students had received $66 million in grants and scholarships, and $60 million of that had come from the university's own resources.
