complete the application process by Jan. 15, 2010. Recipients of the
65th Anniversary Scholarship must be full-time students and live in
an LCU residence hall. This program is open to new, fully admitted
LCU students enrolling for the first time in fall 2010 or spring
This scholarship is awarded as $2,500 per semester for up to eight
semesters so long as the student maintains continuous LCU enrollment
and meets satisfactory academic progress requirements.
The 65th Anniversary Scholarship may be combined with other types
of financial aid, including academic scholarships, though the total
LCU institutional aid may not exceed the cost of tuition and fees.
Total grants and scholarships also may not go beyond the cost of
tuition, fees, room and board.
To qualify, simply apply and submit all necessary admission
paperwork by Jan. 15 for enrollment in the 2010-2011 academic year.
An application, transcripts, reference forms, application fee, and
SAT or ACT results need to be submitted. Applications are available online at
If you are
a freshman applicant and haven't yet taken the ACT or SAT, you'll
need to sit for one of the tests in December in order to meet the
Jan. 15 deadline, so it's important to register now. The late
registration deadline for the SAT is Nov. 13, and the ACT's late
registration deadline is Nov. 20.
All students are strongly encouraged to apply for other financial
assistance by completing a Free Application for Federal Student Aid soon after Jan. 1, 2010.
