The Board of Trustees Scholarship
Entering and continuing students with superior academic records are eligible to apply for a Board of Trustees Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded from funds provided by the University. The Board of Trustees Scholarship is credited to the student’s account covering up to two semester’s full time tuition. Miscellaneous fees for these semesters will be borne by the student. The application procedure involves submission of transcripts, a Board of Trustees Scholarship Application Form, which can be obtained from the Dean’s Office, two letters of recommendation, and a brief essay. The awards will be given on the basis of academic excellence and potential to become an outstanding student at Lincoln University. Students must submit a completed application form and all required documentation at least one month before the beginning of a semester. The Lincoln University Scholarship Committee will interview applicants, select winners and announce them before the semester begins.
The Leadbetter Scholarship
Through a generous contribution of Judge Phillip and Mrs. Ruth Leadbetter, a scholarship fund in their name has been established. Judge Leadbetter is a former Professor of Lincoln University. A scholarship of $500 is awarded to a selected third-year student who is entering the senior year of the Lincoln University undergraduate program. The application procedure involves submission of all transcripts, a Leadbetter Scholarship Application Form, which can be obtained from the Dean’s Office, two letters of recommendation, and a brief essay. The awards will be given on the basis of academic excellence and need. Students must submit a completed application form and required documents by April 1. The Scholarship Committee will select and announce the winner during the Commencement exercises in May.
Lincoln University administration may establish special scholarships from the University funds to selected students based on need. Private scholarships from organizations or individuals given to selected students are accepted and welcome. They are kept on the University account as restricted funds.
