Together We Prevail


You can afford an excellent education at LAU

We are offering the largest financial aid budget in Lebanon – $100 million – and we are working with each student to alleviate the financial burden posed by the current crisis.

You are likely to qualify for aid

More than 85% of LAU students will benefit from at least one form of assistance.

Your case will be carefully reviewed

Each case will be thoroughly studied by the Financial Aid Committee and the appropriate aid package awarded.

You can expect fairness and privacy

LAU is committed to helping students without any favoritism or bias. Staff and committee members comply with the university confidentiality policy governing protected information and undergo annual external and internal audits.

Here are the multiple ways you can attain the excellent education that you deserve:


If you have good grades or special talent, you may have already been offered a partial scholarship. Learn more. But that’s not all: You can request additional aid (keep scrolling!).


Financial aid is based on your level of need, and every case is given serious consideration.

Educational Loan

If you receive financial aid, you may still need a further push, which an educational loan can provide. This is a zero-interest loan that you can repay long-term and at low interest after you graduate. Learn more.

Donors’ Grants

Certain donors are partnering with LAU to help students. Each donor has a different application and deadline. Learn more.

Student Employment

After your first semester at LAU, you can work at campus offices to gain some work experience and a little extra help for everyday expenses. Learn more.

US Federal Loans

If you are an American citizen or green card holder, you could qualify for this additional form of assistance. Learn more.

What is the process like?

To qualify, your file must demonstrate that you have limited sources of income relative to the tuition. LAU takes a full look at your income, its sources, frequency, as well as your liabilities. While assets are taken into consideration, we do not expect anyone to sell their residence or a piece of land to finance their education. Rather, we consider rental income, disposable income and investments.
