Lord Fairfax Community College (LFCC) is committed to helping our students start or continue their education. To this end, the LFCC Educational Foundation Inc. provides scholarships for qualified LFCC students.* These scholarships help defray the cost of rising tuition rates, books and fees and relieve the financial constraints faced by many students.
LFCC scholarships are funded by area citizens, organizations and businesses who share the College’s dedication to assisting students with financial needs and helping them reach their goal of earning a college degree. LFCC and its students owe tremendous gratitude to these donors for the opportunities they provide. Through their assistance, deserving students are able to improve themselves, gain better employment and contribute to our community and the local economy.

Both loans are financial obligations that must be repaid with interest. Federal Education loans offer benefits not provided by private/alternative loans:
