Scholarships & Grants

Top-ranked & affordable

While LPU is the most affordable and accredited private Christian college in California, we recognize students and families may need assistance in paying for their education. Students may qualify for a variety of financial aid opportunities, including scholarships, grants, and loans. Take a look at the different types of financial aid available based on your academic level, and contact us if you have any questions.

Federal & State Grants

Pell Grant

The Federal Pell Grant Program provides federal funds for students of qualifying families. To be eligible, an applicant must be a United States citizen or permanent resident, demonstrate financial need, and must not have previously earned a bachelor’s degree.

CAL Grant

The Cal Grant program provides awards for California resident applicants who demonstrate financial need and meet GPA requirements. California resident students may apply by filling out the FAFSA and a GPA Verification Form. To be eligible for a fall semester award the student must submit a Cal Grant application and FAFSA by May 2.

California Dream Act

The California Dream Act is for non-SSN (social security number) students. Students must complete the online Dream Act Application and re-submit the Dream Act (Cal Grant) application online every year. Students who have never received the Dream Act (Cal Grant) must apply by the March 2 deadline date and submit a non-SSN Cal Grant form.

Outside Scholarships

Students are highly encouraged to apply for outside scholarships to help cover the cost of attendance. Scholarships may be available through an employer, parent’s employer, or through businesses and civic organizations in the community.
