What is a Scholarship?
A scholarship is a financial gift made to a student on the basis of achievement and potential. Many scholarships are based on merit, however, some are based on other criteria or financial need. Scholarships do not have to be repaid. You should pursue scholarships!
Scholarship funding is available for all types of students. The Resource page lists web link that allow you to search for scholarships. Additionally, the College is notified of other scholarships throughout the year and will post information about worthy scholarships.
If you are a student of Lane, the top scholarship you want to begin in fall term is the Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC). In winter term, apply for the Lane Community College Foundation scholarships. Each organization offers hundreds of scholarships in one application. The LCC Foundation's donors are offering more than $1 million in scholarships this year just to students at Lane. OSAC's donors are offering $10 million in scholarships to students statewide.
Scholarship committees want to give funding to students who will be successful in their education, career, and life. Your challenge is to "prove" to scholarship committees that you are a good investment! On your scholarship applications, you need to demonstrate that you have qualities that will make you successful, such as initiative, determination, integrity, service to others, leadership, persistence, commitment, etc.
Start by identifying your skills, values, and strengths, then outline examples of past experiences where you have demonstrated those qualities. Seek ideas, help, and advice from people who know you well (family, friends, advisors, supervisors, etc.) and who can help you present yourself as a strong scholarship applicant.
