ESTHERVILLE, Iowa (KEYC) — Iowa Lakes Community College announced Thursday that its Last Dollar Scholarship program provided $515,000 to students enrolled in high-employment demand programs for the 2019-20 school year.

The Iowa Last Dollar Scholarship covers any tuition gaps that are not covered by other federal and state grants or scholarships for eligible Iowa residents who are enrolled in a target, high-demand career and technical program at Iowa Lakes Community College.

“The Last Dollar Scholarship has benefited many Iowa residents and helped reduce the cost of college for many students. I recommend that any Iowa resident considering enrolling in one of the eligible programs focus on completing a FAFSA by the July 1st deadline,” said Stephen Pelzer, financial aid director at Iowa Lakes Community College.

The program is available to high school graduates and adults who are seeking to improve their skills.

To qualify for the scholarship, applicants must have been an Iowa resident for at least five years, enrolling in an eligible field of study and completing a FAFSA on time.

In addition, more information can be obtained by contacting the Financial Aid Office at the Emmetsburg Campus at (712) 852-5267 or the Financial Aid Office at the Estherville Campus at (712) 362-7917.
