Johnsons Scholars 

Johnson Scholarship Foundation 

The Johnson Scholarship Foundation is a private Foundation with a mission to assist disadvantaged people to obtain education. Theodore R. Johnson and his wife, Vivian Chesley Macleod Johnson, placed great faith in education as a means to help people improve their lives.

The Johnson Scholars Program partnership is unique in nature because it is a matching grant between local colleges, including LSSC, and UCF, that is projected to raise $4 million in scholarships, and provides scholarship support for LSSC students as they journey from LSSC to UCF, complete with mentors who guide them throughout the process and emphasize leadership development. 

In order to qualify the student must be a STEM major (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) and enrolled in the DirectConnect program through UCF.

The Johnsons Scholarship will be offered to students during the month of October for the spring term. Click on the link LSSC Johnson Scholars Scholarship Criteria and see if you qualify.
