The Lamb Foundation Scholarship is available to students enrolled in the Prior Learning Assessment Program 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.
Scholarship eligibility is based on your ability to develop effective PLA essays (credit requests), financial need as determined by your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and registration in a PLA workshop or entry into an extension term (when you submit your final PLA portfolio).
You can use these scholarship funds for:
- Workshop tuition: Preference is given to students who want to take only a PLA workshop in a given term and would not meet the half-time enrollment minimum to qualify for other financial aid. Students can apply for a scholarship to cover up to 35 percent of their LRN 311, LRN 312 or LRN 003 tuition.
- PLA evaluation fees: Students may apply for a scholarship to cover the current evaluation fee for up to 9 credits of their final portfolio.
Scholarship amounts vary from term to term, and are based on merit, enrollment and need.
