Deadline Extended For United Way Of Lamar County Scholarships

The United Way of Lamar County started a scholarship program for Lamar County graduating high school seniors in 2018. This year a CTE scholarship was also established.

The eligibility requirements for the first scholarship is for seniors with a 3.0 or higher GPA planning on attending a two or four-year college. The applicant must also write a 500-word essay on how they benefited from one of the United Way of Lamar County’s 24 partner agencies.

The new CTE scholarship is for those high school seniors enrolling in a CTE program including welding, electrical or mechanical, heating & air conditioning, nursing, automotive, or a similar type of program.

Each of the $500 scholarships requires two letters of recommendation and a high school transcript.

The United Way extended the deadline for both to May 15, 2020. Those needing an application can email
