We value our students as more than just a test score, and we are committed to providing access to one of the nation's most valued degrees for all students. LSU is consistently ranked a Top Value by Kiplinger, Forbes, Money and SmartAsset.
Our holistic scholarship review process allows for a comprehensive evaluation of each applicant. Several factors are weighed in the scholarship awarding process, including, but not limited to: academic transcripts, standardized test scores, family background, achievements in and out of the classroom, letters of recommendation from an academic source, involvement, leadership, service, and demonstration of financial need.
Scholarships are awarded to incoming first-year students, transfer students, Louisiana residents, and out-of-state residents. We are committed to being a smart investment in your educational journey, and as a result, scholarship dollar amounts have historically been adjusted and increased year over year.
