I applied for a scholarship. What happens next?
Check the Foundation Website
The names of individuals being offered scholarships will be posted on the LCC Foundation website by mid-June. Do not call the Foundation Office for results.
Email notifications to students offered scholarships
Individuals who are offered a scholarship will be notified via their Lane issued email. Results are not sent to students who are not being offered a scholarship.
Check your spam folder if you see your name listed as a scholarship recipient on the Foundation website, but you did not receive an email notification. Notifications are sent from Scholarships@laneccfoundation.org.
Accepting Your Scholarship
Your email notification will provide specific instructions for accepting your scholarship. You must complete the online confirmation form by the specified date or your scholarship will be automatically forfeited. If you have questions, send an email to Scholarships@laneccfoundation.org Put your full name and "Scholarship Confirmation Question" in the subject line.
The Foundation Office does not send the list of recipients to Financial Aid at the beginning of the summer. It is possible scholarship awards will not be visible in MyLane until late August,
Declining Your Scholarship Offer
Students who are declining an award will be asked to complete a very brief online form. This will allow us to offer your scholarship to another deserving student.
Eligibility Requirements to Receive Your Scholarship
Complete your required online scholarship acceptance, which will also include a donor thank you, by the date specified in your Notification Email. If you fail to do this, your scholarship will be forfeited.
Some scholarship donors will want to meet their recipient/s either at a Foundation event or in a personal meeting arranged by Foundation staff (you will be notified well in advance of such an event/meeting). If you cannot participate in such an event/meeting when requested, please discuss your personal situation with the Foundation's Scholarship Coordinator.
You must meet all of the criteria listed for your scholarship. Full-time enrollment is required for most scholarships, as well as maintaining satisfactory academic progress. Students who are enrolled less than part-time do not qualify for LCC Foundation Scholarships. Some scholarships require acceptance into specific programs. Failure to meet these requirements can result in the forfeiture of your scholarship.
Update Your Contact Information
Contact the Foundation Office to update your email and mailing address. We use the information from your scholarship application to communicate with you. The Foundation Office has a separate database and updating your contact information through the college (MyLane) does not update our records.
Scholarship funds will be applied to student accounts in three equal installments (Fall/Winter/Spring). Installments will appear in your MyLane account after the second week of each term. Students will not receive their scholarship disbursement if there are any holds on their account.
Foundation Scholarship Exception Request
Scholarship disbursements are made after the second week of each term. If you did not receive your funds, it is possible that you no longer meet the requirements to maintain your award. If you have special circumstances that you would like the Foundation to review, you will need to fill out a Foundation Scholarship Exception Request.
