Financial Aid

We offer a limited number of need-based scholarships for BIOS.  There is a space on the registration form to indicate that you would like to be considered for financial aid.

If your major is within the College of Science and you qualify for financial aid by the university’s criteria, then you are eligible for the BIOS scholarship. The scholarship covers all but $100 of the program fee. This does not include the housing fee.

We begin informing students of their scholarship eligibility in early June.  Prior to notification, we recommend that you pay $100 towards the program fee once it appears on your account; this will secure your spot in BIOS.  If you are deemed eligible for the BIOS scholarship, the remainder will be applied to your account in mid-August.

Please remember that our decision is based on the criteria set by the university, so make sure that your financial aid application (FAFSA) is complete and on file with the LSU Office of Student Aid and Scholarship.  These scholarships are awarded on a first come, first served basis.
