Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Los Medanos College Scholarship Application!

To apply for LMC scholarships, you must be a current LMC student, have established a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 at LMC.

The deadline to submit your application is Friday, February 15, 2019 at 11:59 p.m.

To access the application, click on the “Sign In” button in the upper right hand corner of the page and log in using your InSite Portal username and password.

Please complete the General Application. You may save your application at any time by clicking on the “Save and Keep Editing” button at the bottom of the form.
After you complete and submit your General Application, you may receive a prompt to complete additional questions for one or more scholarships (recommended opportunities). Please note that these “recommended opportunities” are NOT the scholarships to which your application has been matched. These are scholarships that require the completion of additional questions. You may or may not meet the requirements for these recommended opportunities. If you do meet the requirements, click on the “Apply” button and answer the additional questions so that you will be considered for these recommended opportunities. If you do not meet the requirements for the recommended opportunities, you do not need to complete the questions associated with these scholarships. Be sure, however, to complete the General Application so that you are considered for all of the other scholarships.

Your application will later be matched to the scholarships for which you meet the minimum requirements. Being matched to a scholarship by meeting the minimum eligibility criteria does not guarantee that you will receive a scholarship.

Listed below are the LMC scholarship opportunities. You are not required to select individual scholarships for which you would like to receive consideration, as the auto-match feature of the application will automatically match you with the scholarships for which you meet the minimum eligibility criteria.

The date under the “Actions” column indicates the date by which your General Application and the answers to any additional questions must be submitted to receive consideration. This is not the deadline to accept the award.
