Scholarships are competitive and may come from the institution or external sources. There is no separate application for Lane College scholarships. All applicants are automatically considered after applying for admission and financial aid. Scholarship applicants are required to complete the FAFSA on or before February 15 of each year. Lane College Scholarships are based on the availability of funds.
External scholarships are generally awarded to students for academic achievement, athletic participation, community or church involvement, and other specific purposes. Scholarships may or may not require need. The majority of external scholarships awarded to Lane College students come through the College's membership in the United Negro College Fund (UNCF). These funds are competitive (i.e. based on academic merit) and require demonstrated financial need.
Students awarded Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (SEOG), Federal Work Study or Federal Direct Loans, who later receive additional aid not considered in the development of the initial package, may receive an adjusted award letter reducing federal aid as required by law.
