Scholarship Information for Freshmen and Transfer Students
Scholarships for Incoming, Transfer and International Full-Time
Each year La Salle awards scholarships to our incoming class of new
students. More than just helping with tuition costs, our scholarships
are intended to acknowledge and reward the accomplishments of our applicants
both in and out of the classroom. Our process is in-depth because we
are weighing all relevant information sent to us. Scholarships are not
given based solely on a GPA or solely on an SAT score. We evaluate a
wide spectrum of criteria, including but not limited to: the strength
of curriculum chosen, the strength of the school attended, GPA, test
scores, extracurricular activities, the application essay and overall
presentation and letters of recommendation.
NOTE: Only full-time (12+ credits/semester) students
enrolled in the day program qualify for the following scholarhips.
