Scholarships & Grants

These are types of aid that do not have to be paid back.

Scholarships and grants are two types of financial aid that do not need to be repaid. Scholarships and grants may come from various sources. 

Below, we'll cover what scholarships and grants may be available through Labouré, and what other sources you may consider when looking for scholarships.
