Scholarships

Kiwanis Scholarship Recipients 2018

Your academic success and commitment to serving Lake Tahoe Community College and our community could turn into free money for college! Scholarships make it possible for currently enrolled students to earn money for college that does not ever need to be repaid. While some of LTCC's scholarships are competitive, there is a wide variety of scholarships available you can apply for for free that are awarded based on all kinds of qualities and interests: professional ambitions, area of study, demonstrated commitment to community through service, and a mix of other requirements that lie outside of academic achievement. Of course, academic all-stars will also find plenty of scholarships to apply to that will reward their efforts.

Funds for LTCC's scholarships are raised through the efforts of the LTCC Foundation and its board members. For 2018, the Foundation gave out 132 awards worth over $148,000.
