Lake Land College Foundation Scholarship applications for the 2018-2019 academic year are due Feb. 1 by 5 p.m.
Students graduating from high school, adults enrolling at Lake Land College and current students are encouraged to apply. Students who received a Lake Land College Foundation Scholarship for the 2017-2018 school year and wish to be considered for a 2018-2019 award must reapply in order to receive a scholarship again.
The online scholarship application is available at lakelandcollege.edu/ scholarships/. There are four questions a student should be prepared to answer with a 100-word response for each. They are the following: 1. Describe your career aspirations and your educational plans to meet these goals; 2. Explain how you have helped your family and/or made your community a better place to live; 3. Describe your financial situation and how a Foundation Scholarship can help you achieve your educational goals; and 4. Describe a significant change or experience that has occurred in your life. How did you respond and what did you learn about yourself?
Applicants will be considered for all Foundation Scholarships for which they qualify and awards will be announced in April.
Last year, the Foundation awarded $380,000 in scholarships to deserving students.
