"A lack of understanding costs far more than an investment in knowledge."
Louisiana Tech University has a General Scholarship Program administered through the Division of Admissions, Basic and Career Studies. In addition, each of the five colleges (Business, Applied and Natural Sciences, Education, Engineering and Science, and Liberal Arts) has its own scholarship program. General admissions information will be forwarded to some colleges, but students should contact the individual department for additional requirements.

Academic Scholarships are awarded on the basis of demonstrated ability -- usually without regard to need. For general admissions scholarships, incoming freshmen should apply for admission by the priority deadline of January 5 (of the senior year). No separate scholarship application is needed, but ACT or SAT scores and high school transcript with GPA and rank (if applicable) should be submitted. For scholarship purposes, scores through the December test date will be accepted.
Transfer students can apply for scholarships upon acceptance to the University. Scholarships will be awarded beginning June 15th.
Grant-in-aid and Service Awards. Frequently these are awarded on the basis of special skills and require the student to render a service to the University. Included in this category are scholarships in athletics, music, band, and academic department awards.
The Air Force Reserve Officer's Training Corps program offers a number of competitive scholarships to both men and women participants. This award may include payment of all tuition and fees, a per quarter allowance for textbooks, and a $300 per month tax-free cash allowance.
Bulldog Out-of-State Scholarship. Students who are not residents of Louisiana may be eligible for an out-of-state scholarship which covers all out-of-state fees. For complete details, see this page. Incoming freshman are automatically considered for the scholarship with the application for admission. Transfer and enrolled students may obtain the Bulldog Out-of-State Fee Scholarship Application from the Admissions Office in Hale Hall or print it from here.
