Scholarship applications for Lewis and Clark Community College’s 2019-2020 academic year are now available.
The entire process is online at www.lc.edu/scholarships. Filling out a single application will match students with multiple eligible scholarships, aside from a specific few.
To apply, students must have a Blazernet ID and password. Students in high school dual credit courses should contact L&C’s Help Desk to retrieve this information at (618) 468-HELP.
Incoming students will need to apply to L&C first at www.lc.edu/applying. Once the application is processed, new students will receive their log in information.
The application is made available each year via the college’s website in November, and scholarships are awarded in April. Selected students have until June 30 to accept their awards. If declined, those scholarships will be awarded to other qualified students.
Thanks to generous donors, there are scholarship opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and levels of academic achievement. Through the Lewis and Clark Community College Foundation, donors empower students by making a high quality education even more accessible.
Last year, more than 280 students applied for scholarships. The L&C Foundation awarded 78 donor-funded scholarships totaling nearly $200,000. Scholarship recipients and donors were honored at the 7th annual Scholars and Donors Recognition Dinner on Oct. 4.
“The quality of the applications last year was impressive,” said Debby Edelman, L&C Foundation director of development. “Students took advantage of the essay to share how life-changing a scholarship would be for them. That’s exactly why people fund scholarships, to help others.”
Scholarships vary in amount, but about half cover full annual tuition and fees, approximately $4,500 for an in-district, full time student.
