A place where dreams and goals are realized
How can I join?
There are two ways to be a part of the Umoja Scholars Community:
1) Students can join the umoja scholars program (learning community), or
2) Join the Umoja Leadership collective (club)
- To join the Umoja Scholars Program, interested students must be currently enrolled at LMC and have completed the English and Math assessment tests prior to applying.
- Read the Umoja Scholars Program Contract, be willing to agree to its terms, and fill out the online application (see links below).
- Provide a letter of recommendation from a current or former instructor, employer, or community member.
- Provide a one-page essay explaining why you want to join the LMC Umoja Scholars Program. Essays must be typed and double-spaced.

Once approved, Umoja Scholars will enjoy the benefits of registering for blocked Umoja classes in English and Math, tutoring and counseling services, and Umoja community events and activities.
