Announcement from The Lincoln Community Foundation

The Lincoln Community Foundation is pleased to announce that we have updated our scholarship guidelines and application materials for Spring 2018 scholarship awards!

You may find information about our available scholarships by visiting our website at  http://www.lcf.org/impacting-community/student-scholarships

The Lincoln Community Foundation administers more than 70 different scholarship funds–many of which are for students who live outside of Lincoln/Lancaster County!  We encourage all Students from across Nebraska to visit our website to check their eligibility.

We are also pleased to announce that we have a new online scholarship platform this year that will make the application process easier.  By completing and submitting the electronic Scholarship application form, Students are automatically applied to Scholarships for which they are fully eligible.  For those Scholarships which require additional information or documentation, they will be offered a list of “Recommended Opportunities”.  Please read the information and criteria carefully to determine if you are eligible for these “Apply To” Scholarships.

The application deadline for Scholarships is March 15th, 2018. 

2017-2018 ACT Test Prep

Many high school students and families are thinking ahead to preparation for the ACT, the nation’s most popular college entrance exam. All LPS students take the ACT exam at no charge as a junior in high school as part of statewide testing. Students also can pay a fee (or see their high school counselor to apply for a fee waiver) to take the test additional times if they choose.

We would like to inform you about district-approved ACT preparation opportunities and college planning resources for students in Lincoln Public Schools:
