COLLEGE OF LAKE COUNTY’S SCHOLARSHIPS PAGE

Welcome to the College of Lake County’s Scholarship Hub Page!

Check out this video to learn more about our scholarships!

Ready to Apply?
If you are a current student and are ready to apply, click the green SIGN IN button at the top right-hand corner of this page. Sign in with your CLC ID and start your General Application now! Remember, these applications are being graded. Please try to complete this application the best way that you can. If you need assistance, reach out to the Financial Aid Office.

Applying for scholarships at the College of Lake County has never been easier!
We have streamlined the process to just two applications: the General Application and the Supplemental Application. When you complete the General Application, based on your answers, you may be directed to either complete the Supplemental Application or respond to specific scholarship opportunity questions. Our system will automatically match you to multiple scholarship opportunities based on your responses.

Want to know which scholarships you have been “Auto-Matched” to?
Click on My Applications, scroll down below your General and Supplemental application tiles, and you should see tiles to Opportunities that you have been “auto-matched” to.

Apply-To Opportunities:
Some scholarships may require either a separate application or “Apply-To” opportunities where you will be directed to answer opportunity specific questions. These applications and apply-to opportunities can be found under Recommended Opportunities on the top left-hand corner of this page. These are also the VISIBLE opportunities you see at the bottom of this hub page.

I completed my applications, now what?
After completing both the general and supplemental applications click SUBMIT. Your application cannot be graded unless it has been submitted. You can always go back and update your application if needed. The Scholarship Coordinator and CLC’s Scholarship Committees will evaluate and grade the applications to select the scholarship award recipients. You will be matched with the best scholarship opportunities from over 100 options (the more complete the application(s), the better the match). In order to be eligible for scholarship opportunities you must be enrolled at CLC for the specific award period you are applying for (i.e., enrolled in fall for fall 2024 awards, and enrolled in spring for spring 2025 awards).

For the best chance of receiving scholarships: apply early, be as specific and thorough as you can in your answers, and try not to leave any answer BLANK. This is your opportunity to tell us why we should select YOU as a scholarship award recipient.
