The African American Alumni Association and Scholarship Fund were established by LMU alumni, faculty and staff in 2003 to provide financial assistance to deserving undergraduate students. Almost $1 million has been raised and 205 partial scholarships awarded to students who demonstrated academic excellence, leadership ability, and financial need. Your support provides vital financial assistance, matched 2 to 1 by LMU, helping to ensure student retention and graduation.
Since 2004, LMU has increased African-American graduation rates by 14%. Today the university graduates 78% of its African-American students. The Education Trust identified LMU among 11 public and private universities in the country with the best combined graduation rates for African-American and Hispanic students.
