Lewis and Clark Announces 2020-2021 Scholarship Awards

Article by: Debby Edelman, (618) 468-2010, dedelman@lc.edu

GODFREY – Through various opportunities, L&C is empowering students by making higher education more accessible.

“Together, Lewis and Clark Community College’s Financial Aid department and the Lewis and Clark Community College Foundation have produced stunning scholarship results despite these difficult times,” said Mark Kratschmer, president of the L&C Foundation’s Board of Directors.

More than 300 students from throughout the college’s district applied for scholarships, including opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and levels of academic achievement, for the 2020-2021 academic year.

In total, between the college’s Financial Aid department and L&C Foundation, 147 scholarships totaling nearly $475,000 are being awarded.

“Almost two-thirds of the scholarships are funded by donors,” Kratschmer said. “We are grateful for their faith in our students and for their trust.”

The application is made available each year in November at www.lc.edu/scholarships. Applicants complete one online application and are automatically matched to scholarships for which they are eligible. Scholarships are awarded in April by a committee of local educators. Selected students have until June 30 to accept their award. If they decline, the scholarship is awarded to another qualified student.

The L&C Foundation still has about $27,000 worth of remaining scholarships available for the 2020-2021 academic year. Students must apply at www.lc.edu/scholarships by Aug. 7.

Scholarships vary in value, but about half cover full tuition and fees, approximately $4,500 for an in-district, full time student.
