Annual Scholarships

Creating a named annual scholarship is a meaningful way to create a lasting legacy and honor family and friends. As higher education becomes increasingly expensive, annual scholarship funds enable the College to offer need- and merit-based scholarships to the best students without tapping annual operating funds.

To learn more about the many benefits of creating an annual scholarship, please contact the Development Office, or call 800-LFC-ALUM.
