Thanks to generous community individuals, businesses and organizations, Lone Star College-CyFair offers many scholarship opportunities with varying requirements and award amounts.

“Applying for LSC-CyFair scholarships is easy. Download the scholarship application and two reference evaluation forms, which can also be picked up at the financial aid office or be mailed to you,” said Lina Quintero, LSC-CyFair scholarship advisor. “Then complete all sections of the application and turn it in along with the completed reference evaluations to me by the April 1 deadline.”
 
The application and evaluation forms as well as a scholarship application instructions and checklist can be found online at LoneStar.edu/scholarships-cyfair.

Some scholarships have only a minimum GPA requirement. Some are earmarked for students enrolled in certain programs such as business, nursing, radiography, sonography, machining technology, welding and inspect tech, drafting, engineering technology, pre-engineering, drama, music, arts, fire science or alternative teacher certification. Some are for students demonstrating a financial need. Some are for part-time students, full-time students or those seeking a bachelor’s.

LSC-CyFair’s financial aid staff can assist students with the scholarship application process as well as completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA.)
