Lewis and Clark Announces 2017-18 Scholarship Awards

Article by: Laura Inlow, linlow@lc.edu

GODFREY – Through various scholarship opportunities, Lewis and Clark Community College empowers students by making a high quality education even more accessible.

More than 400 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 2017-2018 academic year.

In total, between the college’s Financial Aid department and L&C Foundation, 121 scholarships totaling nearly $338,000 are being awarded.

“Applicants have found it very easy to apply online,” said Debby Edelman, L&C Foundation director of development. “They complete a single application and are automatically matched to scholarships for which they qualify, then final decisions are made by members of a scholarship committee.”

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 award. If declined, the scholarship will be awarded to another qualified student.

Scholarships vary in value, but about half cover full tuition and fees, approximately $4,000 for an in-district, full time student.
