Our Opportunities

Welcome to the Lincoln Community Foundation Scholarship Opportunities Homepage.

Scholarships requiring letters of recommendation are “Apply To” opportunities.

You have the opportunity to complete a general scholarship application that will be matched automatically with our available opportunities. After submitting the application, you may see other “Apply To” opportunities for which you* may be eligible. These opportunities require additional documents, specials essays or letters of recommendation. *When you click on the “Apply To” button of an opportunity you will see additional fields to answer questions, upload documents and fill in the names and addresses of your references.
