Investing in the Future – Supporting Lake Tahoe Community College Students Through Scholarships

Many community college students find the cost of attending school full time and sometimes even part time a barrier to earning a degree. Your scholarship donation removes the worry of paying for tuition and textbooks and gives students the needed support to focus on their studies. Your gift also provides encouragement: knowing that someone cares enough to invest in them is often the key to student success.

Please take this opportunity to make a positive impact on our community by contributing to scholarships for Lake Tahoe Community College students. For information on establishing a new scholarship, please contact Nancy Harrison in the foundation at (530) 541-4660 x 245 or

Scholarship Spotlight

The José Martínez Memorial Scholarship is supported by the Martínez Family and the LTCC H.O.P.E. Club. Students in the club chose to honor their late peer by fundraising to create and offer scholarships in Jose’s memory. José Martínez was a South Tahoe High School and Lake Tahoe Community College graduate. He was a model student that positively influenced those around him. He continuously and gracefully overcame educational and personal barriers as a DREAMer student to obtain his associate’s degree from LTCC. This year’s scholarships will support a LTCC continuing student and a transferring student. Recipients for this scholarship demonstrated need, adversity and support of diversity.

Thank you letter from a 2020/21 Jose Martinez scholarship recipient:

    "Hey, I just wanted to let you guys know how much my scholarship means to me. My dad and I were laid off from work due to COVID, so funds haven't been the best. This is going to really help not just my family but my education. Jose was actually a good friend of mine, so it feels like, in a way, he's helping me too. Thank you so much for everything. I appreciate it so much."
