Scholarships & Emergency Funds
Invest in the next generation of leaders.
Our students work hard inside and outside the classroom, often balancing two or three jobs while going to school in order to improve their lives and contribute to their communities.
With the majority of LaGuardia Community College students being immigrants or living at or under the poverty line, graduation is often tied to being able to afford to stay in school. Our Foundation Scholarships and Emergency Funds programs provides students with tuition and non-tuition relief (college expenses like textbooks and transportation; and living expenses like rent or healthcare).
1,500 scholarships and emergency aid are provided each year at LaGuardia Community College on average.
