“Empowering through access to education”

"For my freshman year, I received the Ukraine Scholar Award that covered 90% of my tuition, which was followed by the President’s Leadership Scholarship that granted me full tuition coverage for the remaining three years. These generous grants have given me the opportunity to work towards my dreams and goals without stressing about financing my studies. They have also motivated me to be an active part of LCC community by giving back to it in the ways that I could."

“Working at LCC”

"LCC has many financial aid options, one of them being the opportunity to work at the university itself. When working on campus everything is close and the hours are flexible; you are able to work around your class schedule and learn to manage your time properly. Working at the Admission Office has definitely helped me get to know the community better and get out of my comfort zone. It has taught me many practical things I will be able to use in my future career as well as given me the opportunity to make new connections."

According to Lithuanian law, amounts paid for studies (when higher education and/or qualification is obtained upon graduation, as well as doctoral studies and art post-graduate studies) by residents of Lithuania can be deducted from the taxable income and thus decrease the income tax for residents. If a person whose studies are being paid for is under 26 years of age and tuition cannot be deducted from his/her taxable income, the tuition can be deducted from the taxable income of one of his/her parents/foster parents. If a loan is taken to pay for studies, the amounts that can be deducted are the amounts repaid. The tuition is to be deducted in the annual income declaration.

The highest net benefit of this deduction is income tax savings amounting to 15% of tuition. For more information on Income tax benefit visit www.vmi.lt.
