Scholarships

The L2L Scholarship is an award of financial aid designed to help students who participate in the program further their education at Christian universities. Scholarships are provided by the universities to students upon the recommendation of the L2L scholarship committee. The amounts of the scholarships vary and are decided by the universities.

Academics are important, but this is not solely an academic scholarship. Many other factors, including the number of years involved in the program, leadership service within the church, school and community, and special awards and achievements, are considered before scholarships are awarded. Students who receive L2L scholarships serve on the National Leadership Team, are L2L ambassadors at their universities, serve on the collegiate staff and work at the annual conventions while attending college.

Scholarship applications must be submitted to the National Service Center by
February 1st of each year.

    • The Office of Financial Aid receives the list of possible recipients from L2L headquarters usually in the spring semester of the students that have completed the L2L Scholarship application and have listed FHU as a top choice of college. The university will award the scholarship and notify the student of the award when they receive his/her financial aid award package. Financial aid award packages are sent out once the FAFSA is filed online at studentaid.gov. Students must maintain a 2.5 GPA and it will be renewed at the end of every spring semester. Recipients must be enrolled full-time. Cannot be combined with athletic scholarship.

Things to know before applying for a L2L Scholarship:

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. Note that it is up to the local congregations to maintain records of the events in which their students participate. L2L is not able to provide a list of events and/or awards for students from past years.

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.

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.
