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, scholarships, loans, and work study. 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.
