Lebanon Valley College offers an outstanding merit-based scholarship program recognizing academic achievement. Students accepted to LVC who rank in the top 30 percent of their high school class will receive an Lebanon Valley College Presidential Scholarship worth up to one half the cost of tuition at LVC.  There is a similar option for transfer students. Only full-time students and those pursuing his/her first bachelor's degree are eligible for LVC scholarships and grants. LVC grants and scholarships are awarded toward the cost of tuition only.

For students who wish to be considered exclusively for an institutional merit scholarship and for no other aid, the FAFSA is not required.  These families are encouraged to notify the financial aid office that they do not plan to apply for need-based aid.
