Every year the Office of Admission awards merit-based scholarships to applicants. Take note that a few University of Lynchburg scholarships require separate applications and letters of recommendation. Learn more about scholarships.
Scholarships, grants, loans, and student employment are all considered financial aid. Scholarships and grants are sometimes referred to as “gift aid” or “free money.” However, because loans must be repaid and student employment must be earned, they are sometimes referred to as “self-help.” Typically, applicants are offered a financial aid package consisting of a combination of awards from various types of aid programs.
