For Immediate Release
Lake Land College Foundation scholarship application period closing soon!
Lake Land College Foundation scholarship applications for the 2019-2020 academic year are due Feb. 1 at 11:59 p.m.
Students graduating from high school, adults who are enrolling at Lake Land College and current students are encouraged to apply. Those students who received a Lake Land College Foundation Scholarship for the 2018-2019 school year and wish to be considered for a 2019-2020 award must reapply.
The online scholarship application process has changed for 2019-2020. In order to apply, students will have to complete a Laker profile and Intent to Enroll at lakelandcollege.edu/enroll. A welcome packet will then arrive in the mail containing a student ID number and password, which is needed to access the Laker Hub. Once logged into the Laker Hub, students can then locate the scholarship application button to access and complete the application. New students are advised to allow two weeks for this process.
There are four questions a student should be prepared to answer with a 100-word response for each. They are: 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 by submitting just one application. Applications will not be accepted after the deadline.
This academic year the foundation awarded 648 scholarships, ranging from $300 to $5,000 each. Since 1992, the foundation has awarded more than $6 million to 10,000 deserving students attending Lake Land College.
