The Lincoln-Way Foundation currently provides 45 scholarships at $500 each for a total of $22,500 divided equally amongst the three high schools. Scholarships are awarded in May each year to graduating seniors. Our appeal tonight is straight forward: raise an additional $7500 from the appeal to benefit more graduates during these difficult times. Thus, we would award $30,000 in total or 20 scholarships per school, up from 15.
To be eligible for the Foundation Scholarship, candidates should be a favorable representative of L-W School District 210, show positive support and contributions to their school, demonstrate good citizenship, pursue any major, maintain above average grades, and receive no other Honors Night scholarships. The recipients will be chosen by the Lincoln-Way Scholarship Committee.
Thank you for your consideration and continued support!
