Outside Scholarship Postings
This page provides opportunities for PLU students to secure additional scholarships and allows us to discontinue the practice of providing paper notices and/or applications in the Hauge Administration Bldg. You are encouraged to apply for any scholarships for which you meet its eligibility criteria to help fill a financial gap, possibly reduce the amount of student loans you need to borrow, or even give you a little more financial flexibility with your expenses.
Please note that we have reviewed these donor organizations’ webpages but have not applied for their scholarships; an application requiring a fee in their application process is not trying to give you their money, but take some of yours instead. Don’t apply and let us know so we can take down the scholarship posting. This webpage will be updated whenever new scholarships notices are received, so check back often; especially in early winter when many scholarship applications are made available by donor organizations. Good luck!
