Lone Star College 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 students represent over 40 countries and speak more than 20 languages.
In Fall 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 made available to the ESOL Program by 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.
