Lawrence is a unique community filled with uniquely talented individuals. We are a place where students with multiple talents and diverse interests come together to form a learning community like no other. Our scholarships recognize this mosaic of talents and interests with a variety of merit-based awards.
Need Based Aid
If your family is like most, you will draw upon a combination of savings, assets, and current income to finance your education. At Lawrence, we understand that for many people these resources are not enough. Between the FAFSA and supplemental aid applications, our need-based financial aid opportunities have designed to assist in making a Lawrence education a reality.
