Scholarships are a type of financial aid that does not need to be repaid. Scholarships are awarded on various criteria usually reflecting the values and purposes of the donor of the award. Scholarships can be based on merit, need, demographics, or career focus.

Each year the Lone Star College Foundation announces a variety of endowment and special scholarships made possible by the generous support of many individuals, families, estates, businesses, corporations, and/or foundations.
If you are majoring in one of the following degree plans, you may be eligible to receive a $2,500 scholarship towards your tuition based on your self-declared major. Presently, scholarships are available for LSC students who are in one of the following instructional programs:
Computer & Information Sciences, Engineering (A.S.)
A limited number of incoming freshmen will be admitted as Honors College Chancellor's Fellows. Recipients of this award will receive an award package to include tuition and fees (up to 15 credit hours of in-district tuition per semester), book allowance (up to $600 per semester), and an allowance ($600 per semester) to pursue a course of study culminating in an Honors AA or AS degree.
NOTE: Some scholarships may require a FAFSA to be completed before eligibility can be determined. Also, a scholarship will not be awarded to the student if, when combined with all other resources (Pell, other outside scholarships, loans, WIA, TRC, etc.), would exceed the student’s unmet need.
If the student is awarded a scholarship, they will need to send a thank you letter to the donor. Please reference the thank you letter example.
Lone Star College Promise
The LSC Promise will fund the balance of tuition and mandatory fees due for students that still demonstrate financial need after all grant and scholarship awards are used to pay for tuition and fees. Books are not covered. It is not a loan and does not have to be paid back.
East Montgomery County Scholarship Foundation
The East Montgomery County Scholarship Foundation (EMCSF) offers a $500 merit-based college scholarship available to deserving students who plan to continue their college education. The scholarship will be awarded to students who demonstrate academic excellence, leadership and service, and financial need.
