Scholarships and Financial Aid
A substantial number of LNCP students receive financial aid. The Financial Aid Program assures that talented students will not be denied a LNCP education due to financial circumstances. Financial aid is funded through the Endowment Program and the generous donations of alumni and supporters. Families must apply each year for financial assistance.
Beginning March 1, 2012, all current and incoming students will be sent a financial aid packet with the process to apply for financial aid. In order to apply, the $250.00 registration fee must be paid. Financial Aid applications are submitted and processed monthly for the months of March, April, and May. Applications submitted by the 15th of the month will be notified by the 30th as to the award available. We cannot guarantee any Financial Aid to those who apply after June 1, 2012.
