You are automatically considered for academic scholarships once you are admitted to Lynchburg College – no separate scholarship application is required.
Academic scholarships and awards range from $10,000 to $21,000 for the 2017-18 entering class and are awarded to full-time students based on high school academic achievement.
Lynchburg College uses ACT and/or the redesigned SAT test scores to calculate scholarships. If your SAT score is from a test date prior to March 2016, please use the College Board score conversion calculator and enter your resulting converted scores in the calculator. Calculate your level of scholarship.
With the exception of the Hopwood Scholarship, scholarship eligibility may vary within categories according to actual test scores and grade point average. Therefore, a student with a higher SAT and a lower GPA (or vice versa) than the example stated may still be eligible for a certain scholarship. SAT scores used for scholarship include the scores from the Evidence-Based Reading and Writing and Math sections only.
Scholarships may have different academic expectations than federal, state, and College need-based aid. Should you receive a scholarship, your scholarship letter will indicate the academic standards required for renewal. In addition to the freshman year, scholarships are renewable for three additional years if you maintain renewal eligibility. You may receive only one of these awards.
Transfer students and students enrolled in our access program (adult learners age 25 and older) are not eligible for these awards. Read about transfer student scholarships and the access student discounted tuition rate.
