If you receive any outside scholarships, email our office at the name and the amount of your awards so that we can add it to your financial aid award, we will adjust your financial aid package to keep it as generous as possible.  Below you will be able to review and link out to Non-Linfield sponsored scholarships, be sure to also review other links we suggest on our Financial Aid and Scholarships Links page too.
