In addition to affordable tuition rates, selected BYU students may qualify to receive a scholarship award. BYU seeks to recognize students who have demonstrated academic excellence, leadership skills, financial need, or unique talents.
BYU scholarship funds are provided through tithes of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, along with offerings from generous friends of the university. Scholarships are awarded in order to encourage continued commitment to spiritual and intellectual growth. The gift of a scholarship assumes an obligation on the part of the recipient to use that investment wisely while preparing for continual and purposeful service in the Lord's kingdom.
Transfer students may apply for continuing student academic scholarships after having completed at least one full enrollment (12 credit hours) at BYU by the appropriate March 1 deadline.
Academic scholarship awards are primarily based on academic achievement.
A student’s unweighted cumulative GPA comprises the main criteria for academic awards.
- Brigham Young (one year, half or full LDS tuition)
- Miscellaneous (one year, up to full LDS tuition)
To apply, complete the BYU scholarship application.
Need-Based & Miscellaneous Awards
The university offers a limited number of scholarships based on financial need and other factors. To be considered for these awards, applicants must fill out the Scholarship Application, which can be found online at scholarships.byu.edu.
Talent awards are available in the areas of athletics, communications, dance, music, theatre and media arts, and visual arts. For these awards, demonstrated ability is a more important criterion than scholastic achievement. For further information and application materials, contact the appropriate department directly (preferably by December 1 of the senior year).

In addition to scholarships available from BYU, we recommend that students search out and apply for off-campus scholarships. College advisement centers, high school counselors, the local BYU Alumni chapter chair, and the general reference section of the library are good resources to help students find potential scholarships.
