Many outside professional associations and service organizations offer scholarships to deserving students. The posting of these scholarships is not an endorsement but a means of providing students with as many opportunities as possible. Please visit our list of sources.
Applying for external scholarships can be time-consuming but because of the wide variety of available awards many applicants are successful in securing some funding. In order to be successful, start your search as early as possible and search often. Do not pay for any financial aid, scholarship applications, or search services. Check out these Scholarship Resources and Tips for valuable information on applying for external scholarships.

Establishing a Scholarship
The gift of education is one of the greatest one can make. LLCC Foundation scholarships are made possible by supportive individuals, community businesses and organizations, as well as through the annual faculty and staff giving campaign. Scholarships are a great way for you to honor a loved one, promote specific career fields, or simply fulfill a lifelong passion for helping others.
There are two types of scholarships that you may establish:
This is a scholarship fund in which you contribute the award amount annually. Contributions can be added to the fund by you and/or others who may wish to contribute to the fund (i.e., family, friends, employers, etc.).
This is a permanent and perpetual scholarship fund created with a gift or gifts totaling at least $10,000. The principal of the fund is invested to produce income, and scholarships are awarded using the net income. You may build an endowment over a period of time.
As a donor, you are entitled to several benefits:
Both annual scholarships and scholarship endowments can be funded in many ways including cash, stocks and bequests. Our scholarship program is flexible and varied enough to allow you to achieve your philanthropic goals. The LLCC Foundation staff is happy to work with you to customize your scholarship and to discuss a wide variety of options regarding donations and gifts.
