Lincoln University Scholarships

Vice President’ Jerryl Briggs’ recommendation to increase the Lincoln University Alumni Endowed Scholarship from $2,500 to $4,000 was approved by the Cabinet.  The hope is that the increased financial assistance will be an incentive for a larger number of higher achieving students to enter Lincoln. Alumni Scholarship recipients will also be permitted to apply for Centers of Excellence scholarships provided they meet those requirements as well.

In addition, the administration will look into establishing criteria that will permit incoming freshmen to receive an additional $1,000 in scholarship dollars for AP courses.

The student meal plan will revert back to the structure in place prior to the fall 2009 semester.
