Scholarships, grants and loans

Don't let cost prevent you from obtaining the college education of your dreams. Scholarships, grants, loans and other forms of financial assistance can make a Lynn education more affordable than you ever imagined. In fact, more than 62 percent of our students receive some form of financial aid.

The following types of financial assistance are available at Lynn. A combination of these awards may be used to meet your needs.

Scholarships and grants

Scholarships and grants are awards that do not have to be repaid. A scholarship is based upon a specific criterion such as academics, while a grant is based upon a student's financial need.


Loans are a form of financial aid that must be repaid, with interest. For many students, loans will make up at least a portion of their financial aid packages, although we advise you to explore all sources of scholarships and grants prior to making use of loans.

Student employment

These awards are based on need, as determined by the FAFSA. While they may appear in your award letter as an award, the award amount represents the maximum amount you may earn through working. This amount will be paid directly to you and will not be applied to your student account.
