United Way of Lamar County Scholarships

2021 Scholarship Winner Keshawn Wallace

The United Way of Lamar County offers four different scholarships to graduating high school seniors in Lamar County.  The first is a $500 academic scholarship for those students going to a 2 or 4 year college, who have benefitted in some way from the United Way or one of our partner agencies.  The second is a $500 CTE scholarship for those students studying in a career or technical program.  And the third, new last year, is a $500 scholarship for "first generation" in their families to attend a 2 or 4 year college.

New in 2022, is a $1,000 per year (up to four years of undergraduate studies for a total of $4000) scholarship for those pursuing an educational degree to be a teacher in Lamar County.

Applications for all three scholarships are due by May 1, 2022 and are available at your high school counselor's office or by emailing srossonuwlc@gmail.com
