Scholarship Calculators

The Lewis University Scholarship Calculators will provide you with an estimated range of what you could potentially receive in merit money based on your academic record (i.e., high school GPA and ACT score for freshmen and cumulative college GPA for transfers).

Endowed and Annual Scholarships

Lewis University offers Endowed and Annual Scholarships made possible through the support of generous donors who understand the value of a Lewis University education and believe in the future of our students.

Current students will use their campus credentials to log-in. New freshman and transfer students will get their login information when they attend SOAR (Student Orientation Advising Registration).

If you received notification that you are the recipient of an external scholarship, you can forward a copy of the notification to the Financial Aid Office and the amount will be added to your account at an estimated status until the check is received. Please include your Student ID number on all correspondence if possible.

Bill/Invoice for Scholarship Payment

If an invoice is needed for a scholarship, please send your request to Alondra Bustos Scholarship counselor, e-mail

If a copy of your bill is required for a scholarship, a copy of your e-bill should serve as official documentation. Any questions regarding your bill should be directed to the Office of the Bursar.

Requests for official transcripts or verification of enrollment should be directed to the Registrar’s Office.

These scholarship dollars are limited, so you should apply for admission before the respective priority consideration date of January 15 for freshmen students or May 1 for transfer students. The Lewis University Office of Admission will provide you with a final decision concerning your academic scholarship eligibility for the 2015-2016 school year once you have been officially admitted to the university.
