Graduate assistantships cover a portion of tuition in exchange for academic work. They are granted based on academic performance. Students apply for assistantships at their respective schools. Please see Academic Rules and Procedures for more details and check the webpage of the program or school you are applying to for application instructions and deadlines.

Merit scholarships are granted to the top applicants of each entering class, based on a specific academic criterion. Tuition coverage ranges from 25% to 100%. The availability and application of merit scholarships is part of the admission application process at the Gilbert and Rose-Marie Chagoury School of Medicine.

Grants cover a part of tuition, and are assigned based on financial need. 

Educational Bank loans, in accordance with agreements with certain banks, allow students to benefit from interest-free loans during their years at LAU. The interest is borne by the university until the student’s exit date, after which it is paid by the student.
