The White Haven Lions Club is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications for the 2013 Scholarship Program. The Club is offering at least two $1,000.00 scholarships this year. Anyone, regardless of age, is eligible if his/her primary residence is in the 18661 zip code or the 443 telephone exchange. Recipients must, at the time of award, be accepted as provisional or full-time students to a degree program at an accredited institution. Eligible institutions are limited to accredited Universities, Colleges, Junior Colleges, Community Colleges, and Technical Schools having at least a two-year program.
The scholarship program is open to both new students and those already working towards their degree requirements. In past years, scholarships have been awarded to freshmen and upperclassmen, and previous winners have included a number of students from area high schools as well as local students attending colleges nationwide. All eligible applicants from previous years are encouraged to participate in this year’s program.
Applications must be received by May 6th, 2013. To obtain an application form, please contact Joe Quinn at (570) 977-4368 or any other member of the White Haven Lions Club. Current members of the White Haven Lions Club and their immediate families are not eligible to participate.
