Scholarships

A scholarship is a financial gift (free money!) awarded to students who demonstrate that they will be successful in their education, career, and life. Every student has a chance for a scholarship, but you have to apply!

Once you start searching, you'll see that there are scholarships available for all types of students, including You! We'll not only help you find scholarships that fit you and your goals, but also help you submit compelling applications that tell Your story.

Important Note:  If the college closes due to inclement weather and we are unable to present the Scholarship Workshops below, please email CareerExplorationCenter@lanecc.edu and we will email you the workshop material.
