  • Career or Occupational Goals: Tell us about the occupation or profession you are interested in and why you are interested. Be sure to include any work or volunteer related experience you have had in this area and how the scholarship would help you achieve this goal
  • Global Views: Tell us about coming to the U.S. for the first time or already being in the U.S. Describe the affect this will have or has had on the program you plan to study.
  • Personal History: Tell us about yourself and your life. Tell us about any personal history of hardship, obstacles, or difficult times that you have overcome or any special circumstance that exists in your life that the scholarship could help you overcome.

In addition to the International Student Scholarship Application, information from your LCC record and your application documents will be considered when making scholarship decisions.

Award notification will be sent to your LCC email address, your home address by mail (if you have a local address), and your preferred email address (if provided).

Scholarship awards are announced within 4 to 6 weeks of application submission.

The scholarship will be awarded for two semesters (Fall, Spring or Spring, Fall, no summer award). It may be used for a maximum of four semesters over two consecutive years.
