We encourage students to pursue scholarship awards. Scholarships are grant awards that do not have to be paid back, therefore, they can be a valuable component to your college financing plan.
Through the generosity of donors and organizations, endowed scholarship funding is made available to enrolled Lesley University students to assist them with their educational expenses. Learn more about our donors and endowed scholarships.
We have compiled a list of scholarships from different agencies that have historically awarded scholarships to our students. Please select one of the following to get started:

In most cases private scholarships are added to any existing financial aid, and do not result in a reduction of existing financial aid. An adjustment in need-based aid will be required only if the total need-based aid exceeds the calculated need. Self-help aid (such as loans and Federal Work-Study) will always be reduced before any adjustment to the grant portion of an award. An adjustment in merit-based aid will be required only if total awards exceed the cost of attendance.
