Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Las Positas College Scholarship Opportunities Homepage.

Only students who have officially declared Las Positas as their college of record may be considered for these scholarships, with one exception: THE BARBARA AND DAVID MERTES MEMORIAL ALLIED HEALTH SCHOLARSHIP is offered to students pursuing allied health careers at both Chabot AND Las Positas Colleges. Chabot College students must apply through the Chabot College Online Scholarship Application

Through the efforts of the Las Positas College Foundation and the generosity of private donors, the Financial Aid Office awards numerous scholarships each academic year. In the selection process, aspects considered include demonstrated academic success, donor-stipulated criteria, and financial need.

Below you will find a listing of scholarships available to LPC students with brief information about the scholarship qualifications.
