Endowed Scholarships 

Scholarship donors have an opportunity to create a named endowed scholarship for a minimum contribution of $10,000. Once the scholarship is established, the principle is never spent and annual interest is awarded to students who meet established scholarship criteria.

 

Foundation for the Future Scholarships

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 $1,000 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.

 

Additional Scholarships

Many additional scholarship opportunities exist with specific criteria.

Degree at LTCC or transferring to a four-year university receive each receive a $2,000 scholarship award to pursue their educational and career goals.
