The Lone Star College-Kingwood ESOL Program serves a diverse student population. They have a variety of educational and cultural backgrounds. Some are first-time college students, and others are professionals with advanced degrees from their countries. Our program has welcomed students who come from over 50 countries and speak a wide variety of languages.
In the fall of 2013, the ESOL Program started offering scholarships to five students each spring and fall semester. These students were recommended by their instructors based on several criteria, including outstanding performance in class and academic integrity. The scholarships have been made possible thanks to funds from the LSC-Kingwood president, Dr. Katherine Persson.
In addition to awarding scholarships, LSC Kingwood ESOL Program recognizes its outstanding students for their academic performance, multicultural understanding, academic integrity, and other criteria. Outstanding students are selected by their classmates through anonymous votes.
