About the Student Scholarship Fund

In 2022 the Lower Columbia College Foundation awarded $570,000 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.

When I first started taking classes, I doubted myself whether I would be successful or even be able to finish my homework because of the language barrier. I learned that by asking questions and asking for help, I could begin a new journey to work toward goals that would improve my situation. Since I worked very hard, not only have I finished courses but I am now on the Dean’s List for student academic achievement excellence.” ~Vidal, LCC Automotive Student
