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. The Foundation has a number of scholarships available ranging from $500 to $5,000 to assist you with the rising cost of tuition, textbooks and fees associated with attending college. Emergency funding is also available to students who have an unexpected, short-term hardship. Scholarships are awarded based on financial need, academic performance, community service, and extracurricular activities. Scholarship applications are accepted on a rolling basis, so students needing financial assistance are encouraged to apply.
Who is eligible to apply for a Foundation Scholarship?
Note: Students who are already receiving full-tuition support from a LaGuardia/CUNY program (i.e. ASAP, Road to Success) are not eligible for a Foundation scholarship.
