Are Lasell University’s scholarships based on merit or financial need?
Lasell University
Lasell University offers both merit-based awards as well as need-based awards. We review all accepted students for merit-based awards at the time of admission. Students must submit a completed FAFSA in order to be reviewed for need-based awards. Lasell offers very generous financial aid and I recommend every student submit a FAFSA to see what their full award package may be.
