The Lake Superior College Foundation raises money for scholarships for Lake Superior College students for fall and spring semesters. Many individuals, families, organizations and businesses contribute to this scholarship program. Unlike a student loan, a scholarship is a gift that is not paid back.

2023 Fall Semester Scholarship

Current and future students can apply for scholarships from Wednesday March 8, 2023, 8:00 a.m. through Wednesday April 5, 2023, 5:00 p.m..

Your application is completed online and consists of several demographic, academic and essay-style questions. You will be asked to upload your most recent college or high school transcript showing your grades as well as a letter of recommendation. You do not need to read through dozens of single scholarship requirements. Your answers to the questions will help volunteer-reviewers score your application and match you to the right scholarship opportunities.

The smallest scholarship this semester is $500. Students in all programs and at all stages of their academic program are eligible to apply.

After the application window closes on April 5, 2023, there will be several steps happening behind the scenes. You will receive an email when the scholarship awards are made, sometime around late July 2023. The goal is to notify students about scholarships before final decisions are required regarding financial aid packages.

Additional Scholarship Details

Scholarship funds typically are deposited on a student’s college account the week after the semester’s add-drop date. Scholarships are often for just one semester but several are for a full year and are split between the fall and spring semesters. When award emails are sent, it will explain the type of scholarship you earned.

Scholarships are generally used for tuition, fees, books, supplies and tools required for coursework. Many scholarships can be used for living expenses too.

The spring semester scholarship application window will likely be the entire month of October 2023.
