Walter F. Schmidt Scholarship


  Effictive Fall 2019 the Walter F. Schmidt Scholarship Fund will be handled through the 

Lincoln Trail College Foundation. Changes to note:

  • Previously Schmidt Scholarships required a separate (Schmidt) application to be filled out and submitted to First Financial Bank during the deadlines posted in the newspaper. The student was responsible for paying fees, tuition, books, etc. upfront. Receipts, balances paid to LTC were to be kept and submitted via application before the Schmidt funds were distributed to the student through the LTC business office. This process will no longer exist. The Schmidt scholarship applications will no longer be required and LTC general applications will be accepted in the process of distributing funds.
  • Schmidt Scholarship criteria remains: The award is for a Crawford County High School graduate only. Preference will be given to FULL-TIME students and/or students pursuing a degree in the medical field, however, part-time students are encouraged to apply. Academic standing shall not be a considerations, but financial need shall be a major factor. 
  • Moving forward the Schmidt Scholarship awards will be given at the same time as the Lincoln Trail College and Lincoln Trail College Foundation scholarships. This means that it is very important for students to submit scholarship applications according to the indicated dates. The Schmidt award recipients will be determined by the LTC foundation scholarship committee.
  • The Lincoln Trail College Foundation is so pleased to have this opportunity to assist in the distribution of the Schmidt Scholarships. We have worked very hard with the folks at First Financial to simplify the application process. We are totally committed to the process of education and so pleased to be associated with Lincoln Trail College and the wonderful high schools in Crawford County and the surrounding area.

There is currently one application for the students to fill out that are applying to attend Lincoln trail college, requesting financial aid. As in most cases, need is a consideration for scholarship awards. 

For the 2020 - 2021 academic school year please note the following deadlines. Priority will be given to those submitting applications on or before January 10th (second Friday in January). All applications must be received on or before the final deadline which is March 13th (2nd Friday in March).
