One of the many objectives of the Lubbock-Cooper Education Foundation is to invest in the future of LCISD students - in part through awarding scholarships to deserving seniors seeking to further their education.

LCISD seniors are encouraged to apply for the Lubbock-Cooper Education Foundation Scholarship. The Lubbock-Cooper Education Foundation Scholarship is open to all Lubbock-Cooper seniors (Lubbock-Cooper High School and New Hope Academy).

During the application process, seniors will also have the opportunity to be considered for four memorial scholarships:  the Hannah Grace Venable Memorial Scholarship, the Craig Staudt Memorial Scholarship, the Joe Dale Gillispie Memorial Scholarship, and the Tami Gunset Memorial Scholarship.
