On a chilly, rainy Tuesday afternoon, Lincoln Community College Foundation scholarship recipients lined the sidewalks of campus holding signs, waving and cheering as cars drove by with their scholarship donors inside. Unable to meet face-to- face with their scholarships recipients this year due to COVID-19, an alternate plan was prepared to show appreciation for our scholarship donors. The Drive-Thru Gratitude Scholarship Appreciation event held October 20 was created to show scholarship donors appreciation for their generosity. All scholarship donors received gift boxes which included popcorn, a cookie, facemask, car magnet and a gratitude frame. After the event, a photo of the scholarship recipient along with a thank you note was mailed to each scholarship donors.
For the 2020-21 school year, the Foundation awarded more than 230 scholarships totaling more than $366,000. The application process for the 2021-22 school year will open December 1. Only one application needs to be completed to be considered for all eligible scholarships. For more information about the scholarship process visit our scholarship page.
