Outside scholarships will reduce your family's out-of-pocket expense to attend Lawrence (i.e. what you pay). Only in rare cases will an outside scholarship or scholarships reduce your Lawrence Grant. (Your total financial aid cannot exceed the Cost of Attendance.)

Reliable places to start looking for scholarship opportunities include your high school, parent's employer, and/or community organizations.

Additionally, you should explore national scholarship opportunities at sites, like: 

Scholarship Opportunities for Undocumented Students

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