The 7th Annual Students in Need Campaign launches March 20th and will run through May 1st, 2022!

Last year, you helped raise over $33,000 in Student Success Funds. Because of your generosity, our most at-risk students now have the chance to get one step closer to achieving their higher educational goals!

The Daily News featured a story of an LCC student, who received a Student Success grant and transformed her life. Read Brittany’s story here. If TDN’s story is inaccessible, LCC’s website also features Brittany’s story.

About the Student Success Fund

The Foundation provides at least $50,000 annually to assist students who are most at risk for abandoning their education due to financial hardship. Student Success funds not only help students in need with emergency funding, but also help the college maintain quality instruction because the funds stay on campus. The average student award is around $500.

These one-time grants mean the difference between success and failure for students who are on their way to graduation.

The Student Success Fund helps students with:

  • Tuition and fees not covered by scholarships, financial aid or grants
  • Testing fees
  • Tools and other school supplies
  • Emergency housing and heating costs
  • Emergency childcare expenses
  • Emergency transportation
  • Other unforeseen emergency expenses barring students from degree completion
