LMU Undergraduate Scholarships

Loyola Marymount University acknowledges its gratitude to the many benefactors who have contributed scholarship funds to the university. Thanks to their generous donations, the Financial Aid Office is privileged to offer numerous leadership, merit and/or need based scholarship opportunities to LMU students.

Most scholarships are awarded automatically by the Financial Aid Office based on criterion established by the funding donor. These awards do not require you to complete a scholarship application. However, all students interested in receiving financial aid of any kind must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

The scholarships listed below require that you complete the online application process. LMU has moved to an online application system for these scholarships. In order to sign in to the new online application site, called Academic Works, applicants will need to log in to the link provided using their MyLMU credentials. The general application form will need to be completed before applying for individual scholarship opportunities.

We also encourage all scholarship applicants to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for other forms of financial aid.
