The application closes on March 1st. However, there are parts that the school counselor needs to complete AFTER the student has done the application. Therefore, it is highly suggested that in order to stay eligible, students MUST complete their part of the application and add the school counselor email address by February 21st!! 

This scholarship is a great opportunity and we want to ensure that we have time to complete the counselor portion to benefit each LC student!

Foundations of East Chicago Scholarship Fair 1-19-18

The Foundations of East Chicago will be hosting our 2nd Annual Scholarship, College & Career Readiness Fair on Friday, January 19, 2018 at EC Central High School from 8am-12:30pm.  

Attendance is on your own as Lake Central does not attend as a group.  Please email Mrs. Wolf in the guidance office by Wednesday January 17th and let her know if you will be attending and approximately what time.

Last year the fair had at least 50 vendors from colleges/universities, trades and scholarship & community resources. The event is not geared for only the top in class -but instead- all juniors and seniors. Understanding that college is not for all students, they will have many job and trade opportunities available.  To date, they have at least 30 registered vendors. 

View the link below and you can see how the fair looked:

There is also a video to the right of the screen about the fair as well.

Legacy Foundation Scholarships

Legacy Foundation’s Common Application is NOW OPEN! Click here to apply:

Now, with the one application, students can apply to all of the scholarships we offer. This year, instead of students having to look through our system and apply to each individual scholarship that meets their needs, the Common Application asks specifics questions regarding the eligibility for each of our scholarships. The system will automatically determine which scholarships they qualify for.

We have a lot of great opportunities this year!

           Webster Cornwell – up to $12,500 renewable ($50,000 total)
          John Anderson Foundation – up to $10,000 renewable ($40,000 total)

Plus many more. Download the Scholarship Booklet here: (I have attached a copy as well)

Reminder to students that if you started the Lilly application (even if just partially), you can import all of your previously entered information into the Common Application on the website. This means completing the Common Application will take much less time! The Common Application deadline is February 15, 2018.
They will also be offering a “Scholarship Information Session” on January 23, 2018 from 5-6:30 at the Legacy Foundation Offices.  They will go step by step through the application and answer any questions.
