Scholarship Applications

Scholarships provide an opportunity for people to pursue their education without the trouble of paying for it. Scholarships can fill financial gaps and decrease the chances and need for loans that people usually opt for to finish their studies.

Payment Plans

We know that facing a large lump sum payment can be financially intimidating that’s why OLFU offers Payment Plans that allow students to make several smaller payments on an agreed upon schedule until they have paid off the full amount of OLFU’s tuition fees.
