For more than 175 years, Lafayette has been known for a spirit of exploration that ignores boundaries, where faculty work with students across disciplines to tackle challenges and solve problems. The ability to make connections and think critically is paramount—on campus, off campus, and after graduation.
Lafayette recognizes its most outstanding applicants with Marquis Scholarships. The award is named after the Marquis de Lafayette, who left behind the safety of his aristocratic life in France to fight for the cause of freedom in the American colonies. He made new connections, discovered a new world, and made a major difference in the future of millions. This is a fitting name for Lafayette College’s highest academic scholarship. Marquis Scholars receive an annual minimum award of $20,000 ($80,000 over four years). Scholars seeking financial aid and whose financial need exceeds $20,000 will receive a need-based award (inclusive of the scholarship) up to demonstrated need.
