Academic Performance Scholarship 2009-2010
The LSU Performance Scholarship is a renewable award for students working on their first bachelor’s degree. Entering first-time freshmen will be eligible for up to four years (12 quarters). Transfer students will receive a pro-rated number of quarters based on their class level at the time of initial enrollment. Students may move between award amounts based on changes to EFC or GPA. Award amounts will be determined on an annual basis. Students who are eligible for the National Merit Award will not get both awards; they will get the higher of the two. Not available to off-campus or reduced tuition programs.
**The cumulative GPA at the end of winter quarter of the previous school year, for continuing students; transfer GPA for new students (depending on when student is packaged).

Church Matching Scholarship
La Sierra University will match up to $1,000 for contributions from students’ congregations or conference. The contribution check (cash will not be matched) must be accompanied with a signed contract, stating that the funds were processed in accordance with IRS regulations. This scholarship program is available to students who have an unmet need after all other student aid programs have been awarded and may help to reduce the students’ loans. The external funds will pay in the quarter received. The University’s matching portion will pay over three quarters.
Literature Evangelist Scholarship
La Sierra University will give a matching scholarship to students who work as literature evangelists during the summer prior to their Fall enrollment. The University will match 100% of students’ certified summer earnings that are applied to their Fall term accounts. Literature evangelist earnings made during the school year are entitled to be matched, up to an additional $3,000.
