Foundation for the Future Scholarship began with graduates from the Class of 2000 from South Tahoe High School. The Foundation for the Future Scholarship Program can provide up to $1000 to South Tahoe High School and Whittell High School graduates who demonstrate any financial need and who graduate from high school with a minimum 3.0 grade point average. Eligible students must successfully complete at least 10 units at LTCC in the summer or fall following their high school graduation; successful students will receive a $500 scholarship check during the winter quarter. Students who continue at LTCC and successfully complete at least 10 units in the summer or fall of the year after their high school graduation will receive another $500 scholarship check during the following winter quarter.
Many students attending Lake Tahoe Community College from local high schools would not be furthering their education without this scholarship. Funding for the Foundation for the Future Scholarship is raised mainly through the Annual Fund and is provided by the LTCC Foundation.

In 2010 the Erica Faye Ledbetter Scholarship Program was established by Jessica Ledbetter, in memory of her sister. Through a generous donation of $20,000 per school year, this Scholarship Program assists Lake Tahoe Community College students with their educational expenses, providing $2000 scholarship awards to 10 students who are either working towards an A.A. Degree at LTCC, or transferring to a four-year university in order to pursue their educational and career goals.
The recipients of the Erica Faye Ledbetter Scholarships are students who face hardships as they seek to complete their goals; such hardships may include re-entry students coming back to school in order to improve their employment opportunities; attending college as single parents; first-generation college students; students on the track to citizenship, or new citizens; and students facing language barriers, and/or economic hardships.
Applicants must have completed a minimum of 24 quarter units at LTCC by the end of the Winter Quarter; they must also be enrolled at LTCC during the Spring Quarter in a minimum of 12 quarter units. Applications are generally submitted in early May of each school year; recipients are notified in early June, and recognized at the annual Awards Ceremony, which is held on the same day as graduation each June. Scholarship awards are disbursed to the recipients the following fall, after they provide proof of full-time enrollment at LTCC or a four-year university.
Students who are enrolled at LTCC for the 2014-15 school year, and who meet the eligibility criteria for the Erica Faye Ledbetter Scholarship Program, are encouraged to apply for these awards using the Common Scholarship Application, which will be posted to this website, as well as the student portal, Passport, beginning in April 2015. Please contact Financial Aid Office staff at LTCC with any questions about this scholarship opportunity: 530-541-4660 ext 236.
