Undergraduate Assistance

The Financial Aid and Scholarships Office collects data from:

  • The application submitted by the student.
  • Supporting documents.
  • A personal interview with the applicant and his/her parent(s) or guardian.

When you apply for financial aid, your application will be assessed and a decision made by a committee of LAU administrators and a faculty representative. You might be granted a financial aid package that combines work-study, grant, and a loan. If you have an excellent academic record, you might be granted a scholarship. You can also benefit from student employment to gain work experience and enhance your leadership skills.
