Transfer Scholarship Competition

The Transfer Scholarship Competition provides students who have demonstrated their academic achievement at the college level with an additional scholarship opportunity while also meeting with faculty and learning more about Lynchburg College programs.

The competition is by invitation only. You must be a traditional-age incoming transfer student who has submitted an application for admission to the College and must also complete the competition application in order to be considered.
