Be Rewarded for Your Talents

Scholarships are gift funds based on academic achievement, a special talent, your major, or financial need. Best of all, you don't need to repay scholarships! With over $300,000 in scholarships awarded each year, all students are encouraged to apply for a scholarship.


To receive a scholarship at LMC, you must:

  1. Be accepted for admission into a program leading to a degree or certificate.
  2. Be enrolled at least half time - six credit hours (for most scholarships).
  3. Meet scholarship-specific requirements. See each scholarship for specific requirements.

Who should apply?
High school seniors and recent graduates as well as continuing LMC students should apply.  Priority is given to high school students.

When should I apply?
High school seniors should apply by December of their senior year. 
Continuing LMC students should apply by May 1.

When will I know if I have received a scholarship?
Scholarships are awarded starting and late spring and continue until the funds are exhausted. We start notifying awardees by letter in late spring. You can also check your LMC Wavelink account to see if you have been awarded a scholarship.
