Make a Gift

Latino/Latina students represent 21% of the LMU student body; of these students, the majority receive some form of financial aid. Your continued support will enable the LMU Latino Alumni Association to award additional students who may not otherwise be able to afford an LMU education. The university plays a major role in the success of this program by matching all LAA scholarship dollars awarded at a 2-to-1 ratio, up to $150,000 in an academic year. Your gift is an investment in our scholars and their education.
