Lineberger Fellows

The Lineberger Fellows program is designed to recognize, support and celebrate the many achievements of highly motivated and talented Lenoir-Rhyne University students. The program accomplishes this by preparing Lineberger Fellows to become more competitive applicants for post-graduate fellowships, awards and exceptional employment opportunities. Participation in the Lineberger Fellows Program is through the University’s invitation-only Scholarship Day or by invitation of the director.

The program is supported by the Lineberger Center for Cultural and Educational Renewal. This scholarship is valued at up to $8,000 over four years. This award cannot be combined with other programmatic scholarships. Federal, state and Lenoir-Rhyne financial aid cannot be combined to exceed the cost of tuition.
