Thanks to its generous donors, the Foundation has awarded over $493,000 to the graduating seniors of Lubbock-Cooper ISD through various scholarships since its inception.

LCEF student scholarships are offered to Lubbock-Cooper High School and New Hope Academy seniors who will be attending a college, university, or technical/trade school. Scholarships are awarded based on academic merit, citizenship, sponsor recommendation, and personal essay.
