Financial Aid

The primary goal of the John A. Logan College Office of Financial Aid is to make it possible to
attend college for students who might otherwise be deprived of a college education because of inadequate funds. Consequently, John A. Logan College promotes grant, scholarship, and
employment opportunities for deserving, qualified students who must find the funds to attend.

Scholarships – John A. Logan College Foundation

Through the generosity of our donors, the Foundation has helped build new facilities, purchase computers for classrooms, replace equipment, buy interactive software for students, and award scholarships, which help students pay for tuition, books and other expenses.

We impact a diverse group of individuals who believe in the value of an education and the opportunities knowledge brings. Our students go on to continue their education at four-year universities or do important work in our community.
