Scholarships not only help you cover the costs of your college education – they acknowledge and reward your accomplishments both in and out of the classroom. Many factors can influence who receives scholarships, including: GPA, standardized test scores, the strength of the curriculum chosen, extracurricular activities, community service, financial need, the application essay, and letters of recommendation.
Keep in mind that some scholarships require a separate application that’s specific to the scholarship for which you’re applying. There are also scholarships not listed that you may qualify for.
Fill out the La Salle University Common Scholarship Application to be considered for many different scholarships, including some that might not be listed. Also, be sure to check whether there is a separate application and other application requirements for the scholarship(s) you’re interested in.
