Try to maximize the federal Hope Scholarship tax credit before tapping into your 529 plan. It's worth more than the 529 plan's tax-free distribution.
The Lewis University Scholarship Calculator will provide you with an estimated range of what you could potentially receive in merit money based on your academic record (i.e., high school GPA and ACT score for freshmen and cumulative college GPA for transfers).
These scholarship dollars are limited, so you should apply for admission before the respective priority consideration date of January 15 for freshmen students or May 1 for transfer students. The Lewis University Office of Admission will provide you with a final decision concerning your academic scholarship eligibility for the 2012-2013 school year once you have been officially admitted to the university.
