A number of graduate assistantships are available to degree seeking graduate students. Assistantships are very competitive, and it’s best to apply early. Selection of GAs begins annually in February.
For full details, see the Graduate Assistantships web page.
To be considered for any of the College endowed scholarships, apply online or download the application (PDF) and submit to the Office of Graduate Studies. These awards are not automatically renewed. Annual application is required. Application review begins after February 15.
Federal Direct Loans provide up to the cost of attendance less any other financial aid for graduate students. Students who demonstrate need through the FAFSA are eligible for subsidized loans. Students who do not demonstrate need based upon FAFSA results are eligible for unsubsidized loans. Students must be carrying at least a half-time course load (6 credit hours per semester) in order to be considered for these loans. Loan cancellation options are possible; the Office of Financial Aid has complete information.
Tobacco Funds may be available to students in Southside Virginia (e.g., Appomattox, Bedford, Campbell, Danville, Pittsylvania). One year of service will qualify for one year of loan cancellation. Awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. For additional information, contact the Lynchburg College Office of Financial Aid.
Post-Master’s Tuition Voucher
The College provides a tuition scholarship amounting to 50% of one 3-credit hour Master’s level course per academic year (May to May) to individuals who have completed a graduate degree at the College. The process involves issuance of a voucher to individuals who have completed a prior graduate degree. The voucher request must be made in writing, and requests should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Requests must include name, current address and telephone number(s), date of birth, and purpose of enrollment. The opportunity is ongoing so that, for example, a student would be able to take one course in a given academic year and additional courses in subsequent years.
