Through the generosity of supporters of Lake-Sumter State College, the Foundation awards over $500,000 in scholarships each year to students attending LSSC. All LSSC students with a 2.0 GPA or above are encouraged to apply. The amount and number awarded vary from year to year based on available funding.

Requirements

  • Applications MUST be completed by the applicant. Under no circumstances can parents, teachers or counselors complete a scholarship application for a student. 
  • Scholarship criteria varies, some scholarships are for specific areas of study or for individuals with specific backgrounds or needs. The online application will determine your eligibility based on your questionnaire answers.  Applicants will be considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible, assuming all pertinent and required materials are included. 
  • Scholarships are available for both full-time and part-time students.
  • International students are welcome to apply.
  • If these requirements are not satisfied, the Foundation reserves the right to revoke scholarship funds.
  • Students must complete the application entirely. Some common mistakes students make is not providing accurate financial information and not providing an accurate GPA.

Application Deadlines

Foundation scholarships are available three times per year. For the Fall Semester, students can apply during the month of June, for the Spring Semester the month of October and for the Summer Semester the month of March.

Notification of Awards

The Foundation manages a review committee of faculty, staff, and Foundation Board members, who review all applications. Scholarship awards are determined through a combination of the student’s academic achievement, essay answers, and financial need.

Applicants will be notified of the status of their application by email.
