What is the difference between the Johnson Scholarship and the R. E. Lee Scholarship?
While the Johnson Scholarship is the flagship scholarship at Washington and Lee, there are a number of other merit-based scholarships for which Johnson Scholarship finalists who come to the on-campus competition are eligible. The R. E. Lee Scholarship is one such scholarship. R.E. Lee Scholarships vary in amount and are awarded to Johnson Finalists who were not selected as Johnson winners, but who have significant demonstrated financial need (as determined through evaluation of a complete Financial Aid application).
