Scholarships & Grants

Types of Funding

Scholarships & Grants

Scholarships and grants are free money that you don’t pay back, making them a great way to help finance your education.

Here’s what’s available to you and how to apply.

  • Threshold Scholarship Fund

    This is a private scholarship fund for students who are eligible for the Threshold Core Program. Students can use the scholarship to complete their 2-year certificate program. The fund is created through the generosity of donors and the amount available for scholarships varies from year to year. We'll award scholarships based upon the availability of funds. Completing the application does not guarantee that an applicant will receive a scholarship award.

    • Scholarships will be awarded annually on the basis of economic need.
    • The Financial Aid Office will notify students of scholarships awarded.
    • Scholarships will be announced on March 15 for those who apply prior to each date.
    • Students can use the funds from the scholarship for tuition or room and board.
    • Full-time enrollment in the Threshold Core Program is required.
    • If the student withdraws from the program during the academic year, the remaining funds will need to be returned to the scholarship. If a student is reinstated into the program, he or she will need to complete the application process again.

    How to Apply

    To apply for Threshold scholarships made possible by our generous donors, please fill out the Threshold Scholarship Application Form. Please then send the completed form to THAdmissions@lesley.edu.

    If you have any questions, please email Colin Brady, the Director of Threshold Admissions and Engagement, at cbrady5@lesley.edu.
