Not sure where to start? Attend a scholarship information session to get information on how to apply, what information you will need to provide for your application, and general advice on how to successfully submit your scholarship application.
All info session will be virtual via Zoom.
All students will receive a notification to their LWTech student email address no later than March 15, 2020.
LWTech Foundation needs to be able to verify your identity in order to consider you for a scholarship. Your LWTech SID, LWTech student email address, and date of birth are required for these purposes. If we cannot verify your identity, we will not be able to consider you for a scholarship.
Before February 4th, you can log back into your application, make whatever changes you need and resubmit your application.
After February 4th, we will gladly work with you to correct any problem that affects your eligibility for scholarships up until scholarship decisions have been announced. Please contact us for any help you need. If the Foundation realizes a correction needs to be made, we will email you at your LWTech email address. Please check your email regularly to ensure you don't miss an important email from us.
When awarding scholarships, reviewing a student's financial aid record is an important part of understanding financial need. If you are eligible to apply for financial aid, we strongly encourage you to apply. If you are an F1 Visa student, a student without a high school degree or GED, or are otherwise not eligible to apply for FAFSA/WASFA then you do not need to apply for financial aid. If you are only eligible for financial aid loans, you can still apply for FAFSA/WASFA; you do not need to accept/receive financial aid in order to be eligible for a scholarship.
Your scholarship letter should include instructions on next steps, how you can access the scholarship, and how you can use the scholarship. The Foundation works closely with the financial aid department to distribute funds. It is a manual process to enter in scholarships and release the funds to your account; both departments are committed to processing funds as quickly as possible. You can reach out to either department to receive a status update.
Unfortunately, the Foundation receives more applications than we have available scholarship funds so highly qualified, excellent students are denied a scholarship through no fault of their own. If you want to learn more about what you can do differently on the next application, please contact us. We strive to support as many students as possible and are happy to help.
The Foundation will tell all students by March 15th regardless of if they received a scholarship. If it is after March 15th and you haven't heard anything, please contact us. There may have been a problem with the email system.
While the Foundation strives to support as many students as possible, scholarships are competitive. Below are some top tips on how-to make your application stand out.
