Your education is a major investment in yourself and in your future. At Pepperdine, we invest in you, too, because your success is our success. Students can apply for a wide variety of financial aid programs, including grants and scholarships. Academic scholarships reward the academic achievement of entering freshmen and transfer students. For students who apply and qualify for need-based financial assistance, the academic scholarship becomes part of their financial assistance package. Institutional grants and/or scholarships are applied to tuition charges only.
Helen Young Scholarships are provided to Pepperdine students in the amount of $5,000 each year. Initial scholarship awards are only given to incoming freshmen and transfer students. A renewal application must be submitted annually by students receiving the scholarship to be considered for funding each year. Only a handful are awarded each year to the most committed and active Church of Christ students from around the country. There is a renewal process each spring and our scholarship committee will determine whether a student has successfully fulfilled the criteria in order to renew the scholarship for the following year.
