Financial Aid

We believe that hard work should be rewarded. If you've done well enough in high school to graduate in the top 30 percent of your high school class, you will receive an automatic Presidential Scholarship. There's no extra application or interview, and no hassle. Our renowned Presidential Scholarships, worth between one-quarter and one-half of tuition, are simple and straightforward. You may also be eligible for one of LVC's other scholarships awarded to students with particular skills or backgrounds.

In addition, approximately 95 percent of our students receive LVC scholarships and grants. 

The Lebanon Valley College Financial Aid Office administers various scholarships, grant, loan, and employment programs for which students may apply. Staff members are available to counsel students and their families regarding the financial aid application process, eligibility criteria, and the numerous types of awards funded by the institution, federal and state governments, and other outside sources.
