Scholarship Application Process
Please read this page before you begin the application.
L2L encourages all students to pursue a Christian education. Each student should decide which school to attend based on personal preference, the advice of parents and church leaders. L2L does not endorse any one school over another.
Things to know before applying for a L2L Scholarship:
The deadline for scholarship application submission is December 1, 2017. This change to an earlier deadline is because of changes to the FAFSA application process that now allows income information from the previous year. This also allows the schools to have more time to make these important scholarship decisions for our students.
Start early (if possible as early as 6th grade) to keep a good record of the events you enter and place in each year at Convention.
Become familiar with the requirements of the school in which you are interested.
Please understand that we will only submit your application to two universities if you request that to be done. Otherwise, your application will only be submitted to your first choice. We limit submission to only TWO universities.
If you do change your mind about attending a university after accepting a scholarship, make sure your assigned admissions counselor at that university is aware of that, so that they can redistribute that scholarship to someone else.
L2L scholarships are not personal property. It is not possible to put them on hold. If you accept a scholarship and then do not enroll as a freshman, you have forfeited your entire scholarship at that university. If you do enroll, but after a year or two decide to quit for a while, you will lose your L2L scholarship. You cannot transfer scholarships to other universities or transfer them to other people.
Universities do not accept applications from already enrolled college students or graduate students for L2L scholarships.
Please make sure your application is received by the deadline.
A valid email address must be included on the application so that we can confirm that the application has been received and is being processed. All application receipt notifications are sent via email, so if you do not include an email address you will not receive notification that your application has been received. If you do not receive notification within two weeks of submission, please email or call 334-215-0251.
Special information regarding Harding University:
Harding University has announced a new scholarship process. More scholarships are now available for L2L students based on participation years and the degree of difficulty of the events. The process of application is the same as before. Please complete the application and send two references and a list of the events of participation. Be as detailed as possible.
Special information regarding Faulkner University:
Faulkner University offers L2L scholarships in varying amounts. Qualifying students will be awarded scholarships after completing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) as early as February.
Students will be awarded L2L scholarships at Faulkner on a points-based system, evaluating the number of years they have participated in L2L and the number of Bible-oriented events in which they participated. The other scholarships for which they are eligible will be taken into consideration as Faulkner compiles the total scholarship package. Each student will be recognized on stage for having obtained the L2L scholarship, but amounts will not be listed on the award. The admissions office and financial aid office will contact the student regarding the total scholarship package.
As part of the requirements for receiving a L2L scholarship at Faulkner University, the student will be required to work two hours per week (at a time convenient for the student) for the four weeks prior to Convention. The student could possibly be called in to work for special projects at other times of the year.
Special information regarding Freed-Hardeman University:
L2L Scholarships will become part of an overall scholarship package that will include other scholarships like academic, athletic, Bible, or other scholarships. Freed-Hardeman University looks at the quality of the L2L events in which the student participated as well as the number of years of participation, so it would be valuable to keep a record of the events if you are considering Freed-Hardeman University.
