Student Support

The best version of themselves.

All gifts to scholarships at Lipscomb directly support students and provide the “opportunity” to become the best version of themselves. We exist to support our students in their pursuit of their education. We believe individuals should have the opportunity to pursue higher education in an environment that aligns with their values. As Lipscomb continues to rise in the eyes of prospective students as a top-choice destination, we must position ourselves in an extremely competitive educational marketplace and offer robust scholarship packages. 

Gifts to the Opportunity Scholarship Fund help attract highly recruited and top-achieving students who receive outstanding financial aid packages from other institutions.

Securing more funding for scholarships and financial aid ensures that talented, mission-fit students—regardless of their financial circumstances—can access the transformative Christian education Lipscomb offers. Supporting those who may face financial barriers enables us to build a culture of equity, unity and belonging on our campus community where people thrive as image bearers of God.


Goal: Generate additional

$100 million!


Lipscomb’s goal is to double the amount of existing endowed scholarship resources to over $100 million to benefit our hard-working students seeking a Christian education.


Funding scholarships helps ensure that talented, mission-fit students will choose a Lipscomb Education. The minimum investment is #30,000, preferred investment is $100,000 and the maxium investment is the donors choice, You are a valuable partner who is changing lives with any gift option you choose!
