LETU Institutional Scholarships and Grants

Scholarships are a form of financial aid award that does not need to be repaid.  While scholarships may take your financial need (as calculated based on your FAFSA information) into account, they are generally awarded based on other criteria which can include academic performance, membership in a particular group or participation in specified activities.  Scholarships are awarded when admissions files are complete. Prospective scholarship recipients are encouraged to complete the admissions process as soon as possible. When completing your FAFSA to apply for financial aid, please remember LeTourneau University's FAFSA code is 003584.

All scholarships listed as "per year" are renewable for 4 years as long as a student continually meets each scholarship's specific requirements.
