Other Scholarships

Scholarships are also available from sources outside Lone Star College. Application, criteria and funding depend upon the agency issuing the scholarship.

Note: Beware of scholarship fraud. Please browse the Federal Trade Commission site for more information.

COMEVO Scholarship

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.
