The Impact Living-Learning Center Scholarship provides additional financial aid to incoming first-year students accepted to the Impact LLC. Each year we award forty (40) $3,000 needs-based scholarships to incoming students of all majors who live in the LLC.

Eligibility: girls1
  • You must rank the Impact LLC as your first choice on your housing application.
  • You must receive approval, through Campus Living & Learning's housing application process, to live in Impact LLC and you must live in the community your first year at Baylor.  
  • You must complete both their FAFSA and CSS Profile (see links below). All students with financial need will be automatically eligible to receive the scholarship. This is determined by the financial aid office.

Award Amount:

$3,000 for the academic year ($1,500 per semester). This award will continue each year if the student maintains good standing by fulfilling the requirements laid out by the Student Engagement office. Students do not need to have a major in the School of Education to be eligible for the Impact LLC Scholarship.


Impact LLC scholarship offers are contingent upon the recipient living in the Impact LLC in South Russell hall. If the recipient fails to select a bed assignment in the Impact LLC, or moves out of the LLC, the scholarship will be removed from your financial aid package and student account.

The iLeader role is very flexible and will fit with the schedule of all incoming Baylor first-year students. The iLeader program exists to bolster yoursuccess at Baylor University!

After the May housing application deadline has passed, the Impact Scholarship Committee will contact financially eligible students who raked Impact LLC as their FIRST choice via email with the application link. Please check your email after you apply for housing as many University communications are sent to this email address. Scholarships will continue to be offered throughout the summer until they are no longer available.

Maintaining Your Scholarship:

If you receive an Impact LLC scholarship, you can maintain your award after your first year (for up to 8 semesters) through one of two options:

  1. Continue living in the Impact LLC and serve with the Impact LLC Leadership Council (iCo). iCo Leaders organize monthly events for the Impact and have a great time connecting with one another as they serve both our freshmen and upperclassmen!
  2. If you choose to live off campus, you will need to work with the office of Student Learning and Engagement to determine an eligible leadership role in order for you to continue to receive your scholarship.
