Refer the next generation of students
Refer a student and they can receive up to $4,000 in Alumni Referral Scholarship support thanks to you.
It’s as easy as 1,2,3
- Fill out the Student Referral form at plu.edu/refer

- Student receives $1,000 annually
As a graduate of Pacific Lutheran University, you know firsthand the amazing experiences students have as part of the liberal arts education here. With the Alumni Referral Scholarship, you can help make PLU possible for someone you know.
There’s no limit to the number of students you can qualify for an award. You don’t have to wait until they’re high school seniors, either — refer a freshman to give them lots of time to think about becoming a Lute.
The deadline to refer a student graduating from high school in 2021 is Dec. 1, 2020.
Your support of scholarships can keep PLU students going. And all gifts make a difference.
Scholarships are the No. 1 financial need for most PLU students. Scholarships help the best and brightest students choose PLU — and scholarships make sure they can continue their education.
Because of the pandemic, PLU students currently have increased scholarship need. With record-level unemployment, many students were unable to work this summer, and many families are less able to provide financial support for their students.
Your gift of any size will help students succeed this year.
