Texas Tigers Scholarship

Texas Tigers Scholarship
Greetings Texas Tigers,
 
LSU’s Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships recently announced a new scholarship program - and it’s designed specifically for Texas residents!
 
Our Dallas alumni chapter in conjunction with the LSU Alumni Association and key LSU administration have long advocated for a non-resident fee exemption for our best and brightest Texas students.  With the establishment of the Texas Tiger Scholarship, we have finally achieved a 20% reduction in out-of-state tuition fees.  Specifics and qualifications are detailed below, so please help us get the word out to any prospective Texas students who are considering LSU.  Additional great news about this scholarship is that it can be combined with other LSU scholarships (with the exception of the President’s Alumni Scholars Award), and becomes available to students enrolling for the Fall 2016 semester.  (Don't forget to apply for the two LSU Austin Scholarships available to Austin-area students!)
 
Prospective students who meet the scholarship requirements outlined below will receive a 20% non-resident fee exemption, which is currently valued at$3,433 per year in addition to any other applicable scholarships received.
 
Texas Tigers Scholarship Requirements are as follows:
  • 26 ACT minimum or 1170 SAT minimum (critical reading and math)
  • 3.0 cumulative computed six-semester high school GPA
  • Texas residency
 
By applying for admission to LSU, you are automatically considered for all university scholarships. It's that easy! LSU does not require an essay, personal statement, or letters of recommendation. 
 
Thank you for helping us share this exciting new opportunity for excelling Texas students.  If you or any prospective scholarship candidates would like more information, please contact the LSU Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships at

Geaux spread the word, Texas Tigers!
