The entire application process is online. Filling out a single application will match students with all eligible scholarships.

More than 175 scholarships are available for a total value of nearly $600,000. Scholarships vary in amount, but about half cover full annual tuition and fees, approximately $4,500 for an in-district, full-time student.

Available scholarships are provided by the Lewis and Clark Board of Trustees and generous donations from local community members arranged by the Lewis and Clark Community College Foundation.

Each scholarship has its qualifications, including, but not limited to, items such as program of study, town or county of residence, academic success, volunteer activity, status as a non-traditional student, etc. There are opportunities for every student at L&C.

“The college is fortunate to be able to provide scholarships as a form of financial support for students who may face financial barriers when choosing to pursue higher education. That is why supporting the Scholarship program is an important aspiration of our strategic plan,” said L&C President Ken Trzaska.

“We have had over 150 students complete scholarship applications so far, and I expect that number to rise significantly in the next few months,” said Scholarship Program Coordinator Cora Gray. “We have a phenomenal group of current and incoming students that compete for our scholarships each year.”

The application asks for demographic information and includes three essay questions about a student’s goals, financial needs, and reason for choosing L&C.

Students are encouraged to take advantage of the essay questions to give the reviewers a glance into their lives and let them know how much a scholarship would impact them.

Gray said it is essential that students apply for scholarships as soon as they can and give the application their all to stand out to the Scholarship Review Committee, composed of educators from local school districts and directors on the Lewis and Clark Community College Foundation board. These community leaders volunteer their time every spring to review the applications and select the recipients.

By providing scholarship opportunities, L&C hopes to encourage students to take the life-changing step of continuing their education and pursuing their dreams.
