“I can’t underestimate the importance scholarships have made in my life. Yes, it helps me be at Lake Forest, but it also gives me piece of mind and an opportunity to branch out and pursue other interests like violin, tutoring, and volunteer work.”

ACCESS | Scholarships
Lake Forest College is committed to admitting highly qualified students regardless of their ability to pay. We admit students who are smart, well-rounded, and prepared to accept the challenges of a rigorous undergraduate education. While students with financial need often get assistance from government sources, this support alone is almost never sufficient. Merit and need-based scholarships are essential for Lake Forest to attract and retain the best students. The College seeks to further expand access to scholarship support for our students by adding $30 million in current, endowed, and future gifts targeted for the purpose of merit and need-based scholarships.
Ways to support
Donors can establish named endowed scholarships with gift commitments of $50,000 or more. Annual scholarships can be established with annual gift commitments of $2,500 or more. Both types of scholarships can be designated to support a student who reflects your interests and values, such as an art major, science student, or musician, or you can simply give to any deserving student with financial need. Finally, a future gift named as part of a donor’s estate plan can be designated for the purpose of establishing a named endowed scholarship.
