The United Way of Lamar County offers three different $500 scholarships to graduating high school seniors in Lamar County. The first is an 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 CTE scholarship for those students studying in a career or technical program. And the third, new in 2021, is a scholarship for "first generation" in their families to attend a 2 or 4 year college.
Applications for all three scholarships are due by May 1, 2021 and are available at your high school counselor's office or by emailing email@example.com
