Scholarships

LSU Alexandria is fortunate to have generous donors that provide scholarship funds to assist students in meeting their educational goals. Donors establish the guidelines and eligibility for each specific scholarship, as well as the amount permitted.  Scholarships are limited to fund availability.  Endowed scholarships are scholarships where the disbursements are based on earnings from the invested donations.  Non-endowed scholarships are scholarships where the disbursements are based on donations received that year.

All admitted students are considered for all foundation and institutional scholarships. New students are encouraged to meet the priority deadline of December 1 each year to be considered for first-time freshman scholarships.
