For Organizations submitting scholarship payments on behalf of specific students, it is important to provide student information (student’s full name and student number) and any specific requirements regarding the distribution of the award such as award year or term, and how funds are to be applied (tuition, fees, books, educational expenses, etc.). Also, indicate if any remaining scholarships funds can be paid directly to the student or be returned to the organization at the end of the semester or award year.  Upon receipt of the scholarship funds, it generally takes two weeks before the student is awarded the funds; so, be sure to send funds early in order to ensure payment due dates are met.  Scholarship checks should be made payable to Lansing Community College and mailed to:
