Financial Aid

Link to Financial Aid Fact Sheet

Lewis & Clark College seeks to be a community that is culturally, economically, socially and geographically diverse. To help achieve this goal, the College offers financial support to students who would not otherwise have the resources to enroll. Lewis & Clark offers both merit scholarships as well as need-based financial aid to international students. 

Financial Aid forms should be submitted along with the application for admission.

The deadlines for financial aid applications are as follows:

November 1  for Early Decision, Early Action

January 15  for Regular Decision Applicants

February 1  for Continuing Students

International students are eligible for merit-based scholarships.  All applicants are automatically considered for these scholarships. Lewis & Clark does not award athletic scholarships. A number of named scholarships are designated for international students only.

For more information on how we determine financial aid awards, see our financial aid fact sheet.
