Scholarship Resources For Students


La’ James International College believes that one of the best ways our students can pay for their education is through scholarships. Scholarships are a form of financial aid that is awarded to students for their further education. We are dedicated to helping students find scholarships to assist with the costs associated with attending school. One year, LJIC students received $155,000 in scholarships, helping them pay their way through school. Check these tips on how you can find a scholarship!
