Each year, the LCCC Foundation provides Financial Awards for College Tech Prep seniors who continue their education at Lorain County Community College.  A minimum of two College Tech Prep Awards will be given for academic year 2019-2020.  Recipients may receive the award for two academic years as long as they maintain award eligibility criteria.

Award amounts vary per student and may be used to help pay for tuition, books, and/or supplies.  Recipients must enroll at LCCC for a minimum of six credit hours.  College Tech Prep Awards are considered “last dollar” support – meaning that the amount of the award will be determined by both the student’s college enrollment hours and the total amount of other financial aid received.

The maximum annual award, based on full-time enrollment, is $1,000 less the total of other financial aid (Pell Grant, Ohio Instructional Grant, scholarships, etc.) received.  Awards for students attending less than full time will be prorated based on the number of credit hours enrolled. 


  1. The award is available to any Lorain County College Tech Prep program graduate who continues on in their College Tech Prep pathway at Lorain County Community College.
  2. Students must have a minimum 2.50 overall high school grade point average.
  3. Students must have a minimum grade of a B or better in their College Tech Prep program.
  4. Applicants must file the 2019-2020 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have their EFC reported no later than June 07, 2019.
  5. There are no eligibility restrictions in regards to race, color, national origin, sex or handicap.
