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.
Honors College Merit Scholarships are geared toward incoming or current college students who are planning to be at Lone Star College for less than two (2) years and/or are unable to commit to the Chancellor's Fellows requirements.
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.
