GODFREY – Lewis and Clark Community College empowers students by making a high-quality education more accessible through the offering of various scholarship opportunities.

Over 300 students from throughout the college’s district applied for scholarships for the 2023-2024 academic year. These scholarships provide opportunities for people of all ages, abilities, levels of academic achievement, and career paths.

Approximately 160 scholarships were awarded from the college’s Financial Aid department and the L&C Foundation. In total, the scholarship amounts awarded exceeded $520,000.

“Scholarships are investments that produce life-long returns,” said Financial Aid Director Angela Weaver. “Scholarships help make getting a college education both accessible and affordable for many, some of whom could not attend school otherwise. An investment in the lives of the students who attend Lewis and Clark Community College is an investment in their future, ours, and those who will come after us.”

The online scholarship application is available each year on Oct. 1 at www.lc.edu/scholarships.  Scholarships are awarded in April following the application close date of April 1.

Scholarship award amounts vary, with a large portion of them covering full tuition and fees, approximately $4,650 for an in-district full time student.
