Recent Grant History
Returning Women Scholarships
There are many paths to
Many students choose to postpone college; many move directly into the
workforce, bypassing a university education altogether; others put their
college careers on hold, choosing the more difficult task of raising a
family. It is only later that they decide to pursue a higher education,
either to improve their personal and professional opportunities, or to
expand their general knowledge. We are grateful for the donors in our
community who have established non-traditional scholarships for returning
women. These scholarships give preference to helping female students begin
or return to college, years after leaving high school.
Applications are now available for the Walk with Excellence Returning
Women’s Scholarship and the Bedford Elks Ladies Marie Disbennett
Scholarship. The scholarship applicants must be a returning woman
student currently enrolled in or accepted to an accredited college,
university, or technical school after at least a one-year period of time
since high school graduations. The applicant must be a current resident of
Lawrence County who has lived here for at least one year prior to applying
for the scholarship, and who maintains a local permanent mailing address.
All requested information must be submitted by June 28th to the LCCF
Scholarship Committee in order to be considered as a scholarship applicant
