Lawrence is very committed to assisting international students financially, but funding is limited. Students are most competitive for admission if they can contribute $20,000 USD per academic year toward the cost of attendance. The total cost of attendance includes tuition, room, board, fees, books, and travel. Scholarships vary in amounts from $5,000-$38,000 USD per year you are attending Lawrence University. Once you have been awarded your scholarship, you cannot lose it.

Last year, the average scholarship for international students was approximately $19,000 USD. The average financial aid award (which includes scholarships and employment), was approximately $22,000 USD.

You must apply for scholarships and/or financial aid alongside your application for admission. For more information, please click here and read the section titled "Certification of Finance".
