About Scholarships

Scholarships are gifts awarded to students for various reasons and do not have to be repaid

Scholarships are offered through Los Angeles Trade Technical College as well as several departments, the Los Angeles Trade Technical College Foundation, community groups and individual donors. Scholarships are generally awarded on the basis of academic merit, leadership, talent, and/or community service. Financial need is a criterion for some but not all scholarships. Eligibility criteria, application procedures and deadlines may vary by program.

Los Angeles Trade Technical College scholarships are available through the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.
