Lamb Foundation Scholarship
The Lamb Foundation Scholarship is available for PLA students who have successfully completed LRN 305: PLA Seminar, and are eligible to continue developing their PLA Portfolios through enrollment in one or more of the PLA Workshops (LRN 311, 312, 003).
Eligibility for the scholarship is based on students' demonstrated ability to develop effective PLA essays (credit requests), financial need as determined by their Financial Aid Application (FAFSA), and registration in one of the PLA Workshops.
Two ways scholarship funds may be used:
- Workshop Tuition: Preference will be given to students on financial aid who want to take only a PLA workshop in a given term, and would therefore be enrolled less than the half-time minimum to be eligible for other financial aid. Students may apply for scholarship monies to cover up to 35 percent of their LRN 311, 312 or 003 tuition.
- PLA Evaluation Fees: Students may apply for scholarship monies to cover the current evaluation fee.
Scholarship amounts vary from term to term, and are based on merit, enrollment and need.
