Scholarships for Freshmen

We understand that finding money to help pay for college is often the most stressful part of the college search process. We are pleased to announce that LHU has developed a new merit-based scholarship strategy.  Using your SAT/ACT scores and GPA, you can determine how much scholarship money you will receive from LHU.

With the exception of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education Foundation Inc. scholarship, a scholarship application is not required.  Any scholarship money awarded will be applied to the student's 2020-21 billing statement.
