Through the generosity of an anonymous Friend of LeTourneau University, the LETU Home School Endowed Scholarship has been established to benefit new students enrolling at LeTourneau University. This scholarship, first established for the Fall 2010 entering students, will be awarded for each new academic year using the following criteria.
