The GENERAL SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATION is for ALL Lincoln Trail College scholarships (CCAE,PASA,SASA, Ensemble, etc.) and the majority of Lincoln Trail College Foundation scholarships, including the Walter F. Schmidt scholarship. The application has very specific and strict deadlines. Priority deadline is 2nd Friday in January and Final deadline is 2nd Friday in March each year. There is a lot of funding available through multiple scholarship awards at variable amounts. You are strongly encouraged to complete your application before the priority deadline. 

The IMPROVING LIVES SCHOLARSHIP is available to residents of Crawford County only who are enrolled at

Lincoln Trail College. The primary focus of this scholarship is to address the financial hurdles associated with continuing

education. Preference will be given to single parents with financial needs associated with childcare/daycare expenses; however

all unanticipated financial needs that are prohibiting Crawford County residents from achieving educational goals will be

considered during the awarding process of this scholarship. Award amounts will vary based on the needs of the selected

candidates. Notification of awards will be sent through e-mail provided on application. 

The Foundation offers the Clara Mullen Memorial Scholarship (transfer scholarship). This is a scholarship available to a Crawford

County High School graduate who also graduated from Lincoln Trail College and will be working toward a Bachelor of Science

or a Bachelor of Arts Degree.
