Education is not cheap. Many college students work long shifts or part-time jobs to pay for classes on top of living expenses. Having access to scholarships is a big weight off their shoulders.
Las Positas is offering over $400,000 in scholarships for LPC students. Recipients of the scholarship can expect an award email through their college email address by early May. The funds awarded will be provided for the 2018-2019 academic year.
All applications are to be submitted online. The deadline for submissions is Sunday, March 11 at midnight. The application has one general submission and automatically matches a student to several scholarships.
The student must have completed a minimum of 12 semester units by the end of fall 2017 at LPC to be eligible. They must also be currently enrolled in at least six units of classes at LPC. International students who hold an ‘F1’ visa are also eligible for scholarships. Students who are transferring in the fall can still apply and use the scholarship towards educational expenses at college of transfer.
For students who need help with their applications, LPC is offering aid at the Online Service Center Room 1672 (next to Admissions and Records). Dates and times for assistance are posted on the school’s financial aid website.
