Scholarships are awarded based on merit and do not need to be repaid. Eligibility for scholarships can be based on academic merit, leadership and/or talent.
LMU Academic Scholarships The Arrupe, Trustee, Presidential, Jesuit and Marymount High School, Leadership, and Jesuit Community scholarships are non-need-based, undergraduate institutional awards granted to entering freshmen based on academic achievement, leadership, and community service. Full-time enrollment (12-18 units) is required each semester to receive these awards. Academic scholarships may be adjusted if you receive additional federal, state, or institutional aid not listed on your Financial Aid Award. Annual renewal of these awards is automatic as long as you meet eligibility requirements outlined in your scholarship notification letter.
Most endowment awards are need-based university scholarships and grants for undergraduate students and are awarded according to donor-specified criteria such as major, campus activities, and/or academic performance. Often an endowment award will replace a previously awarded LMU Grant. Students may be contacted by University Relations to write a thank you note to the donor each fall.
Full-time enrollment (12-18 units) is required each semester to receive these awards. An endowment award may be reduced or canceled if you later receive other federal, state, or university awards, or other resources not listed on your most recent Financial Aid Award. Annual renewal of a university endowment award is NOT automatic. Students must apply for financial aid each year, meet priority funding application deadlines, and maintain a 2.0 GPA or donor-specific GPA requirements.
In accordance with NCAA regulations, Athletic Grant-In-Aid is designated for student-athletes to assist with college expenses. These awards may be full or partial grants regardless of the student-athlete’s financial need. Eligibility for Athletic Grant-In-Aid awards is determined by the Athletic Department each year.
Less than full-time enrollment (less than 12 units) will require reevaluation of the award amount. An athletic grant may be reduced or canceled if you later receive other federal, state, or university awards, or other resources not listed on your most recent Financial Aid Award.
Based on scholastic and financial eligibility, students may be eligible for the LMU Supplemental Award. This award does not automatically renew and requires annual completion of the FAFSA, meeting all federal and institutional requirements by LMU’s priority deadline and an evaluation of your financial need and the current status of available funding should you wish to reapply.
The LMU Supplemental Award will be reduced or cancelled should you later receive other resources not listed on your most recent award package, including federal, state, university awards or other.
