Lewis-Clark State College Work Scholars is a unique program designed to reduce student loan debt. Work Scholars (students) graduate with valuable work experience and professional skills in addition to their degree or certificate. Tuition scholarships as well as stipends are awarded to highly motivated individuals who demonstrate academic success as well as financial need. Additionally, students may earn internship credit for their Work Scholars experience.  Work Scholars are incorporated into community and campus workforces at assigned placement sites where they build and practice workplace skills in communication, problem solving, time management, accountability and adaptability. By purposefully integrating work experience and community service into the traditional academic environment, the LCSC Work Scholars program helps students build a pathway to real world success while reducing the financial burden of higher education.
