Lake Area Technical College Foundation processes all outside scholarships that students receive from private and non-profit institutions, corporations, or organizations. Students who have an outside scholarship should bring the check or a copy of their award letter to the Foundation office to ensure it is applied to their account.
Lake Area Technical College Foundation has awarded more than $450,000 in scholarships in the past year, supporting our students’ educational goals. Funding for scholarships has been provided by generous donors who believe in technical education and our students’ abilities to achieve academic success.
The Lake Area Tech Foundation uses ONE universal online application for all scholarships (including Build Dakota). We encourage all students to apply! Approximately 400 students received Foundation scholarships in the previous academic year.
