The power to dream bigger.

Taking a chance on yourself, and your future, may be one of the most valuable decisions you ever make. Your dreams are important. And your ambitions matter. A Lake Trust Foundation scholarship can help on your path to success.

Scholarship Programs

Since 2013, the Lake Trust Foundation has awarded a cumulative total value of $1.6 million in college and trade school scholarships to students in Michigan. With an understanding that an education can open doors to new opportunities, we’re proud to support individuals on their path to a new career.

Michigan Impact Scholarships

We’re excited to announce the recipients of the 2022 Michigan Impact Scholarships! Five individuals each received a full-tuition scholarship that can be used for up to four years at Cleary University. Funds can be applied toward any online or on-campus program that fulfills a need for one of Michigan’s high-demand careers through 2028.

New Beginnings Scholarships

Six individuals were recently selected to receive a New Beginnings Scholarship worth up to $5,000 through the Lake Trust Foundation. Each recipient is attending school to gain a degree or certificate as they train for a career in a skilled trade. Scholarship funds can be used for tuition, books, supplies, and more. Help us say congrats!


More funding options to pay for school.

The world is filled with opportunities. And now it’s your turn to take a chance on the future. So, let’s work together to prepare your finances for school. Through our partnership with CU Student Choice, simple financing options are available. If you’re not sure where you’re attending yet, you can still prepare and apply for a private education line of credit. Then, request the exact amount of funding that you’ll need later. That’s the power of planning ahead.
