GODFREY – This year, Lewis and Clark Community College opened scholarship applications in November, months earlier than in years past, to give more students the opportunity to benefit.
“We realize that some students plan for college based on where they can earn scholarships and get aid to help them pay for school,” said L&C Foundation Director of Development Debby Edelman. “The scholarship website opened early this year to coincide with when four-year colleges and universities’ applications are available.”
In 2015, Lewis and Clark made applying for scholarships easier by streamlining the process and offering one website, a one-stop shop, for searching, browsing and applying for all scholarships.
“There are more than 100 scholarship opportunities for which students can apply for the 2016-2017 school year,” said L&C Financial Aid Director Angela Weaver. “Between the Lewis & Clark Foundation and Lewis and Clark Community College, more than $300,000 in scholarships were awarded during the most recently completed school year. Students still have more than three months to complete the scholarship application.”
The deadline for these applications, based on the award year 2016-2017, is March 4, 2016. Students can find the application link at www.lc.edu/scholarships
