Education is a gift that lasts a Lifetime!
Thank you to all of our donors who made the 2015-16 Scholarship season possible!

LTCC Coyotes LOVE the LTCC Foundation!
Foundation for the Future Scholarships began with South Lake Tahoe High School graduates from the Class of 2000. Foundation for the Future Scholarships provide up to $1000 to South Tahoe High School and Whittell High School graduates who demonstrate financial need and graduate 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 high school graduation; successful students will receive a $500 scholarship during the winter quarter. Students who continue at LTCC and successfully complete at least 10 units in the winter or spring after their high school graduation, will receive another $500 scholarship during their second winter quarter.
Many students attending Lake Tahoe Community College from local high schools would not be continuing their education without this scholarship. Wonderful donors provide funding for the Foundation for the Future Scholarship through annual fund donations.
