Applying for scholarships for college students

As you continue your studies and try new extracurricular activities in college, you might be eligible for more scholarships you weren’t originally qualified for. Don’t forget to revisit college scholarship opportunities regularly as you continue college or get more involved on or off campus.


  • If you get more college scholarship money, it might affect your other student aid.
  • All of your student aid added together can’t be more than your cost of attendance.
  • You’ll need to let LTC know if you’ve been awarded a scholarship, so the financial aid office can subtract that amount from your cost of attendance.


  • Remember, scholarships for college students are free money, so you’ll still be paying less for college.

How are college scholarships awarded

Many scholarships are awarded for academic or athletic excellence. But scholarships aren’t just for straight-A students or all-star athletes. There are different types of scholarships out there for almost every hobby, skill, or interest. Think about your strengths and things you love to do—then search for scholarships based on those.

Most scholarships require you to fill out a form, write an essay, or submit some sort of creative entry.

These are scholarships that the financial aid office has been made aware of.  This list is in no way comprehensive or all inclusive.  A scholarships inclusion here does not guarantee eligibility. Please use this page along with other scholarship search engines to search for funding for college.
