[October 09, 2009]  To celebrate its 65th anniversary, Lincoln Christian University is taking the extraordinary step of guaranteeing a $5,000 annual scholarship to all new applicants for the School of Undergraduate Studies who 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 2011.

RestaurantThis 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.
