Types of Aid

Here at Lipscomb, we’re committed to making your educational goals become a reality, and that includes financially.

Lipscomb is dedicated to consistently enrolling a diverse community of students, regardless of their financial capacities. And that’s why we provide financial aid for 99 percent of our undergraduate students each year. We offer a variety of scholarships, federal work study opportunities, grants and loans to students like you. 

There are several ways to finance a Lipscomb degree:

  • Grants are awarded based on need and do not have to be repaid.
  • Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, talent, service and leadership and do not have to be repaid.
  • Loans can be borrowed from federal or private sources in the student or parent's name and must be repaid.
  • Federal work study provides an opportunity to work part-time and earn money for your education. These are most often on-campus jobs.

Based on these resources, our financial counselors will put the best available package together for you. In addition, Lipscomb will apply any outside scholarships or grants you have earned and apply them to your financial aid package.
