Scholarship Program 

 

The local scholarship awards of $2,000 will be distributed to the scholarship recipients’ colleges or universities in August of 2020. Scholarships are non-renewable. Once admitted to a college or university, the recipient must submit proof of their admittance to the LNESC National Office to receive their scholarship disbursement.  The disbursement process will not begin until admittance verification is received. If it is not received by the August deadline, the recipient risks the loss of their scholarship award. Scholarship awards will be sent directly to the recipient’s college or university and deposited in the recipient’s name. The funds will be allocated toward the payment of tuition and academic fees, and the purchase of required educational materials and books.  The school is the custodian of the funds and will disburse the award consistent with the purpose of this program.
