Below is a SMALL sampling of scholarships that might be available to you. We encourage you to visit the Career Center at LPHS for assistance in searching for scholarships that best suit you!
Scholarship information changes often. While new scholarships are added, and others are discontinued. Links, deadlines and qualifications change. Use the contact page to notify us of broken links, out of date information or valuable scholarships you have discovered & applied for.
Tips for searching for Scholarships on your own:
- September of your Senior year is the best time to pursue scholarships
- Search Scholarbox, linked from the LPHS Counseling Page
- Do a google search. Search: scholarship + (and then insert defining words). You might put 'culinary arts' or 'interior design' or 'dental assisting'. Do the search using different terms to identify the field you are looking for.
- Sites ending in ".org" are usually non-profit sites and are often good opportunities
