Scholarships

Scholarships of varying amounts help students achieve their collegiate goals by paying for tuition, fees, books, housing and other educational expenses. Some scholarships cover a portion of those expenses while others can actually pay the entire cost of attending a semester of classes at LSCPA.

Some scholarships are based on a student's financial need while others are awarded on the basis of academic excellence or skills.

One type of scholarships is administered solely by the college, including the selection of recipients by means of a committee comprised of faculty and staff members. The other type of scholarship is administered by the college at the request of donors who select the recipients themselves.
