Lake Land College students have a variety of options for earning scholarships to assist with paying for college.
Lake Land College Foundation Scholarships are awarded to students in a wide range of majors and backgrounds. Each year, the Foundation awards students more than $400,000 worth of scholarships ranging from $300 to $5,000. Only one application is required to be considered for all Foundation Scholarships. However, there is an additional special application required for the John Deere Ag Tech Scholarship, awarded to students enrolled in the John Deere Ag program.
Both incoming freshmen and current students are encouraged to apply each year as the scholarships are not automatically renewed. For a complete list and descriptions of all foundation scholarships, visit the Foundation website.
Applications for the 2019-2020 academic year will be accepted from November 1, 2018 – February 1, 2019 and August 1, 2019 – September 1, 2019. For more information about foundation scholarships, contact the Foundation at 217-234-5445 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Many community organizations, banks, credit unions, clubs, fraternal orders, businesses and employers sponsor a variety of private scholarships. Students are encouraged to contact these organizations about scholarship opportunities. High school guidance offices are also an excellent resource for scholarship listings, searches and assistance. Many private scholarships are awarded well before the fall semester begins, so students should start the search and application process early and pay close attention to deadlines.
