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 semesters’ 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 Admissions 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 student who is entering the senior year of the Lincoln University undergraduate program. The application procedure is the same as above but must be completed by April 1 for the following academic year. The Scholarship Committee will select and announce the winner of the award by the end of the Spring Semester.
Lincoln University administration may establish special scholarships or discounts from the University funds to selected students based on their 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.
