  • Foundation Scholarships

    LaGuardia Community College Foundation Scholarships are made possible by contributions from generous donors who believe that deserving students like you should have a quality education without the financial burden. If you are eligible, the Foundation offers support to assist you with the rising cost of tuition, textbooks, transportation and fees associated with attending college.
