LCBT Scholarship

The LCBT Scholarship is designed to provide needs based scholarships for graduating seniors in our community. As a locally owned community bank, Lapeer County Bank & Trust Co. wants to encourage and reward graduating seniors who are motivated to obtain a degree. The LCBT Scholarship is designed to award up to $4,000 to each recipient; $1,000 per year for up to four consecutive years. We accept applications from graduating seniors in the Lapeer, Imlay City, Dryden, Almont, North Branch and LakeVille districts. 

First time applicants will need to submit their completed application, high school transcript or GED documentation, a completed essay and the first page of income tax forms for both student and parents. 

Students applying for a second, third or fourth year extension of the scholarship must submit a completed Scholarship Extension application, college transcript, completed FAFSA and the first page of your most recent income tax forms.
