Scholarship applications for the 2022-23 academic year opens on October 1, 2021. Enrolled students can complete a short General Application to auto-match with all their qualified opportunities, as well as complete the 2022-23 FAFSA and apply for federal grants.
Scholarship funds are absolutely free; no paybacks, liabilities, etc. These will transfer straight into a student’s tuition, alleviating the need to come up with the money on hand. The General Application is due by March 1, 2022, but students looking to maximize their opportunities should apply as soon as possible.
For students enrolling into Lewis and Clark, be sure to create your LC email and password to stay updated with any offers or new opportunities. High school students will need to attach a copy of their official transcript to the General Application, as well as know the date of their high school graduation/GED completion date.
Unsure if you’ll be qualified? Don’t be! Lewis and Clark has dozens of opportunities for students in search of relief, as well as additional applications through various organizations and scholarship programs for students to take advantage of. Completing an application takes minutes, but students can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars in tuition debt by filling out the forms.
Second-year or returning LC students are still required to complete a new General Application for the 2022-23 scholarships. Submissions from previous years do not count towards the upcoming academic year, and a new FAFSA form is available for documentation towards the 2022-23 academic year.
For additional questions, our financial aid office is open Monday – Friday (8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.) to schedule an appointment with an advisor. Any tuition fees not covered by scholarships may be considered through the FAFSA, and getting ahead-of-the-game is a sure way to save the most on college expenses.
