Lincoln College Grant and Scholarship Opportunities

Lincoln College is a private college and is affordable.  In fact, for the third year in a row, Lincoln College has not raised tuition.  Additionally, the net tuition and fee rate is guaranteed not to increase in the future, as long as the student is continuously enrolled at Lincoln College as a full time student.  Moreover, available grant money allows many students who come from families with income at all levels to attend Lincoln College.  Regardless of income, academic based scholarships ranging from $4500-$8500 are available.

No separate application is required.

New Student Academic Scholarship

New students are eligible for academic scholarships ranging from $4,500 – $8,500 based on a review of the ACT score and high school grade point average.  There is no separate application required.  Transfer students are not eligible for this scholarship.  The following awards are based solely on academic performance without regard to financial need.  Award levels are guaranteed for qualified students whose admission applications are completed by July 1. This Academic Scholarship requires full-time attendance (12 or more hours per semester) and must be applied toward tuition only. If a student enrolls mid-year (e.g. Spring term), they are only eligible for ½ of the academic scholarship.
