Institutional Grants

SLU Need-based Grants:

St. Lawrence University Grants are based on demonstrated financial need using the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). SLU Grant amounts depend on need, academic standing and available resources. Students may receive SLU Merit funds in addition to the need-based grants. Information about St. Lawrence University Merit Scholarships may be found here.

SLU Legacy Grants:

Legacy Grants are offered to incoming students who have had or currently have a brother or sister attending St. Lawrence or have had a parent or grandparent attend in the past. It is not need- or academic-based. This is a $2,500 grant for each of the four years totaling $10,000, disbursed over eight semesters. This grant is not awarded to siblings whose enrollment begins in the same semester, or to students eligible for the St. Lawrence employee tuition remission benefit.

St. Lawrence Supplemental Grants:

St. Lawrence Supplemental Grants are called the Laurentian Award or the Supplemental Laurentian Award which are based on special circumstance situations.

Revisions for Unanticipated Grants:

If additional grant funds are received after the financial aid package has been determined, the St. Lawrence Grant may be reduced by the amount of the additional grant unless there is unmet need or special circumstances. Special circumstances are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
