We know that financial considerations are often a deciding factor for students and their parents when choosing which school is the best fit. Here at LSA Scholarships, we strive to make an education from the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts a financial reality for all students, regardless of their background.
About LSA Scholarships
The LSA Scholarships Office is the home for scholarships within the College of LSA. For many LSA students—over 2,600 in the last year alone—the scholarships provided by our office helped reduce or eliminate their unmet need and student loan debt. The majority of our scholarships, including those for incoming students, are awarded to students based on their financial need. However, we do offer about forty merit scholarships each year, as well as a limited number of international student scholarships.
If you’re a newly-admitted student still deciding whether LSA is the right place for you, we encourage you to apply for our scholarships to see how LSA can help you fund your educational goals. All of our award decisions for incoming students are made before the university's enrollment deadline so you can make an informed choice.
