CLC Foundation Scholarships

In addition to offering federal and state financial aid programs, CLC also awards scholarships funded by the College of Lake County Foundation. These scholarships address the needs of many different kinds of students and include eight major award programs and nearly 100 individual scholarships.

The CLC Foundation’s major award programs are open to all students, regardless of legal status. The CLC Foundation also offers individual scholarships that have separate requirements based on donor specifications, some of which are open to foreign and undocumented students.

During the 2012-2013 academic year, the CLC Foundation awarded scholarships to over 400 students!

Major Foundation Awards Programs

The CLC Foundation raises money to fund eight major award programs–Academic Achievement, Career, Diversity, English as a Second Language, GED, Honors, Returning to Education and Student Activities. Students are automatically considered for these awards when they submit their application.

Individual Scholarships

Students can also select individual scholarships for additional consideration from the Individual Scholarships list (PDF).

CLC Foundation Scholarship Application

The first step in applying for scholarships through the CLC Foundation is completing the 2014-2015 Scholarship Application (PDF) by the following priority processing deadlines:

  • Fall 2014 Awards:  June 30, 2014
  • Spring 2015 Awards:  Oct. 31, 2014
  • Applications submitted after the deadlines will only be evaluated as funding allows.

Most scholarships require students to submit a FAFSA application. If you are a DREAMer, have been granted DACA or a similar status, complete the CLC Application for Financial Aid Consideration (PDF) instead.

Please note:  It is your responsibility to read and follow the scholarship guidelines, requirements and provisions. If you have questions, please contact the Office of Financial Aid.
