ESTHERVILLE, Iowa (KEYC) — Iowa Lakes Community College announced Thursday that its Last Dollar Scholarship program provided $515,000 to students enrolled in high-employment demand programs for the 2019-20 school year.

The Iowa Last Dollar Scholarship covers any tuition gaps that are not covered by other federal and state grants or scholarships for eligible Iowa residents who are enrolled in a target, high-demand career and technical program at Iowa Lakes Community College.
