Students enjoy the summer out in Bison Square

As a current student or recent graduate, chances are you have excelled academically here at Lipscomb. If you’re planning to pursue a nationally competitive merit award, our office is here to provide the support to help you succeed.

Students with strong academic records are invited to apply for a number of prestigious scholarships and fellowships. These awards provide the recipient with an opportunity to study in a world-class university or challenging professional environment at home or overseas. In some cases, partial tuition support for your undergraduate education is provided. 

There are four categories of awards

National scholarships requiring institutional endorsement
Applications are reviewed first by a Lipscomb University committee, with a certain number endorsed and sent on to the award granting organization for the next round in the selection process; students cannot apply directly, but must go through Lipscomb University’s nomination process.  Please note that the internal deadlines indicated are approximations for general planning purposes only.  Applications must meet actual deadlines, which are announced each year as they become available.

National scholarships with no institutional endorsement
Applicants send their materials directly to the scholarship agency, with no preliminary selection by Lipscomb University.  We will help you with your application to ensure that it reads well and that it is submitted on time. We will have internal deadlines that you need to meet to give us amble time to assist you with the application before the actual deadlines. 

Langford-Yates Fellowship
This is an internal scholarship that is only open to Lipscomb University students. The award enables Biology, and Chemistry and Biochemistry undergraduate students to conduct summer research. In general, successful candidates for these merit awards have a record of outstanding academic achievement, substantive leadership, and, for some awards, sustained community service. These awards seek students who will be future leaders in their fields, change agents who will make a distinguished contribution as graduate students and as future professionals.

The Community foundation of Middle Tennessee
More than 70 scholarship funds are administered through an open application process. Some scholarships help students from a particular school or area; others provide financial assistance to those pursuing a specific field of study; still others assist students most in need.
