Lipscomb offers scholarships that recognize, among other areas, academic accomplishment, service involvement and leadership capability. Financial aid award packaging is based on current information. Changes to the FAFSA, moving off-campus and additional gift aid (Lipscomb scholarships, outside scholarships, state and/or federal grants) may result in adjustment of institutional aid, including memorial scholarship awards.
The Scout Award is for incoming freshmen who have received the Eagle Scout Award, Venturing Silver Award, Sea Scouting Quartermaster Award, Trail Life Freedom Award, GSUSA Gold Award, Ambassador Award, or American Heritage Girls Stars and Stripes Award. Proof of scouting award is required. Recipients must live on-campus at Lipscomb University and maintain a 3.0 GPA. The Scout Award is renewable up to maximum of eight semesters. Deadline for application is prior to freshman year enrollment. To be considered for a scholarship provided by the institution, students need to file the FAFSA once admitted.
