Prospective Students


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.

The LSA Scholarship committee has successfully awarded all Four-Year and International Scholarships for the 2024-25 academic year. All recipients have been notified by email. With this, our application and awarding process is now complete!

We're thrilled to share that we've granted scholarships to over 400 out of the 6,000+ admitted students to the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. This represents a significant increase from previous years! 

We deeply value the weight of the decisions you're facing regarding your educational journey and commend your achievements! We look forward to welcoming you to campus this Fall.

As we strive to streamline communication, we kindly request that you refrain from sending emails regarding award status if you have not received notification of an award. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.

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 unmet financial 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 learn how LSA can help you fund your educational goals. 

Scholarships for First-Year Incoming Students

All incoming students who are U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents will automatically be considered for a Four-Year Renewable Scholarship. It is no longer necessary to fill out an application to be considered for an award.

Some LSA Scholarships are intended to aid students with financial need, and some are awarded based solely on a student's merit, whether they are eligible for financial aid or not. Scholarship awards range up to $15,000 per year for in-state students and up to $25,000 per year for out-of-state students. They are renewable for four years of undergraduate study. 

All incoming international students who are first-year or transfering, should complete our International Student Scholarship application as soon as they are accepted into the College of LSA. By completing this one application, international students will be considered for all scholarships they are eligible for through the LSA Scholarships Office. Awards can range up to 25,000 USD per year, and are renewable for four or two years of undergraduate study (depending on your admittance status).
