About the Scholarship

The LSU Family Association Scholarship is awarded to students of Family Association members through a selection process that occurs annually during the spring semester. We typically award 20-30 recipients each year. Each recipient will receive a $1,000 scholarship - $500 for fall and $500 for spring.

Since 2010, the LSU Family Association has awarded more than $250,000 in scholarships to students of Family Association members. The scholarship alleviates financial burdens on students with $1,000 in funding, which students can use toward tuition, books, food, etc.

Please feel free to email the LSU Family Association at lsufamily@lsu.edu or call (225) 578-1173 should you have any questions regarding the LSU Family Association Scholarship.
