How can I apply for scholarships?

I'm interested in scholarships at LCSC...how do I apply?

The majority of scholarships require only the General Scholarship Application. For those that require a separate application see: Scholarships that require a separate application...what do I do?

  • Visit www.lcsc.edu/financialaid/scholarships-and-waivers to see the list of scholarships offered through LCSC that require the General Scholarship Application.
  • Browse the categories and descriptions.
    • If a scholarship requires you to demonstrate financial need, you must have a FAFSA on file by the March 1 Priority Deadline.
  • Complete the General Scholarship Application in its entirety.
  • All scholarships require the general essay to be answered. Additional essays may be required for some scholarships.
  • If submitting the paper version, be sure it is signed.
  • If submitting online, be sure to attach your essays/additional information.
  • The General Scholarship Application must be submitted by March 1. 

I've submitted my General Scholarship Application...now what?

  • If you submitted your application online, you will receive notification via email once your application is received.

    • If you were not offered a scholarship, you will receive a letter notifying you of this decision.

Will I be considered for a merit-based scholarship?

Merit-based scholarships are awarded based on your cumulative grade point average (GPA) or test scores (ACT, SAT or RSAT)

  • Visit www.lcsc.edu/financialaid/scholarships-and-waivers/merit-and-academic/ to see if you are eligible for consideration.
  • To qualify, you must be admitted at least tentatively by March 1 (December 1 for Early Consideration). To ensure you are considered, submit your transcripts, test scores, etc. to the Admissions Office as soon as possible.
  • Merit-based scholarship recipients will receive an Offer Letter in early March; acceptance of the scholarship offer will be done on WarriorWeb.

Scholarships that require a separate application...what do I do?

  • Scholarships not included on the General Scholarship Application must be applied for using the provided separate application.
  • Read through the description and the requirements.
  • These scholarships may have different deadlines and/or essay requirements.
  • Submit the scholarship application to the address provided on the application.

Where can I get information on outside scholarships on the LCSC website?

I have received a scholarship from an outside donor...what do I do?
