“Your generosity will ensure the continuity of the institution for many generations to come.” — Kendra Sprague, Vice President of Foundation, HR & Legal Affairs.
In 2019 the Lower Columbia College Foundation awarded $449,000 in student scholarships, thanks to the generous support of scholarship donors.
Scholarships may be named in honor or memory of an individual or family member. Scholarships may also be established in the name of a business or organization to foster a spirit of corporate citizenship and community support.
“Scholarships play an important role in removing financial barriers for our students and in helping them achieve their goal of a college education!” — Foundation Board Chair, Rich Gushman
Annual Scholarships provide one or more scholarship awards, in number and amount determined by the donor. Funding is renewed by the donor each year. Annual Scholarships require a gift of $500 or more.
Endowed Scholarships provide one or more scholarship awards in perpetuity. Endowed funds are invested, and up to 5% of earned interest is awarded as determined by the LCC Foundation Board of Directors. Endowed Scholarships require a gift or pledge of $20,000 or more, payable within five years.
Students apply for multiple LCC scholarships using a single, convenient online application. There is no cost to students. All current and future students are encouraged to apply. Learn more about the scholarship application process.
Scholarship applications are typically accepted each year during winter quarter, and provide funding for the next academic year (fall, winter, spring quarters).
