Scholarships

The Foundation collects scholarship dollars and distributes them to our colleges so that they may award these funds directly to needy and deserving students.  Through statewide fundraising efforts, including the support of LCTCS employees and board members, the LCTCS Foundation is proud to offer several statewide scholarships for our students.

I am taking the steps I need so that can be successful and make a better life for me and my child. No one in my family has attended college much less graduated college and I am determined to be the first one to do so.
