Interested in Hosting a Work Scholar?
The LC Work Scholar program was created around a "Working College" model, which aims to provide an opportunity for students to gain on the job experience while earning a full tuition scholarship plus a yearly stipend. Spots in the program are limited and awarded to highly motivated students who demonstrate academic success as well as financial need, helping to reduce or eliminate the need for student loans. Additionally, students may earn internship credit for their Work Scholars experience.
