FOR APPLICANTS

HOW THE PROCESS WORKS

Screening Process:

Each application is screened on the basis of financial need, extra-curricular activities, scholastic rating, the student’s career goals, and plans for college. We ensure a conscientious, confidential, and fair assessment of each application.

 

Amount of Awards:

In general, award amounts are determined by the rating given by the screening committee, based on the need of the applicant and the quality of the application.

 

Notification & Disbursement of Funds:

Most graduating high school students are notified at their school’s award night or graduation ceremony. All recipients are notified by the end of June. Scholarship recipients receive a College Certification and Request for Disbursement from, which must be completed by their college. Upon receipt of the completed form, LRSF forwards a check to the college, to be applied to the student’s account and disbursed as half for each semester. Students receiving awards of $300 or less may be reimbursed directly by sending LRSF validation, such as copy of cancelled checks or receipts, that college-related expenses have been paid.

SCHOLARSHIP COMPETITION OPPORTUNITIES

ANNALEE THORNDIKE ART COMPETITION
