It’s just the reality of being a non-profit organization – you’re going to spend a lot of your time asking for financial contributions. Without the generosity of others, JA of Lincoln simply wouldn’t exist. That makes us very, very grateful. It also makes it a refreshing change when we get to be the ones who give others some financial help.
The best way we know to do that is through college scholarships! Every year at this time, we put the call out for Lincoln’s best and brightest high school seniors. We’ve got several $500 and $1,000 scholarships to give away, and we need your help get the word out. In order to apply, a student must have been part of a JA of Lincoln program at some point during their high school career – either as part of a high school class, the Driven Youth Invitational, or the Future CEO tournament. Beyond that, it’s all about motivation and ambition. We looking to help the go-getters take that next step toward a successful future.
Know a student who fits that description? Make sure they know about this great opportunity! For all the rules and a downloadable application, click here. But don’t wait! Scholarship applications are due by March 22, 2013, so time is running out!
And stay tuned later this school year to learn about the winners. We’re never disappointed by our amazing local students!
