In most situations, outside scholarships will reduce your family's out-of-pocket expense to attend Lawrence (i.e. what you pay). In some cases, outside scholarships may affect your eligibility for the following federal need-based programs:

  • Federal Work-Study
  • Federal Perkins Loan
  • Federal Direct Subsidized Loan

Only in rare cases will an outside scholarship reduce your Lawrence gift aid (grant/scholarship). In this rare situation, it is because your total financial aid cannot exceed the Cost of Attendance.

If you have earned outside scholarships (congratulations!), please report them in Voyager or by returning the Outside Scholarship Report Form.
