LMU Latino Alumni Association Scholarship Program

Latino/Latina students represent 20.7% of the LMU student body; of these students, the majority receive some form of financial aid. The LMU Latino Alumni Association awards partial scholarships to incoming LMU freshman who demonstrate financial need, academic achievement and a commitment to the Latino community. This is a four-year renewable scholarship opportunity for students who continue to maintain the minimum requirements. Not only do our scholars receive financial assistance in the form of a partial scholarship, they also benefit from the encouragement and mentorship of the LMU Latino Alumni Association community at large.


"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..."

The success of this scholarship program is due to the dedication of the LAA board, alumni, university faculty and staff, friends and the many sponsors who believe in our mission and goal. 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.‌

The LAA scholarship program is fortunate and indebted to alumni and sponsors who have established scholarships benefiting our scholars.
