Scholarship Eligibility

To be considered for an Educational Scholarship, an individual must be a Colorado High School graduating senior and accepted for enrollment at an accredited Institution of Higher Learning.

Club Responsibilities for Sponsoring A Scholarship Applicant

  1. The reasoning behind a Lions Club sponsoring the applicant is to form a basis to meet these young people and their parents or to go to the schools and meet the school counselor with the intent of promoting Lionism. This will give you an opportunity to introduce yourself and possibly your club to them.
  2. In the event your applicant should receive one of the four scholarships, the Endowment Scholarship Funds asks that the sponsoring Lions Club, if possible, pay for the student and one parent's meal at the State Convention's Saturday Night Banquet when they receive their certificates.
  3. Endowment Scholarship Fund Trustee would like to recognize your club for its support of the program during this time.
  4. There is no limit as to the number of scholarship applicants a club may sponsor.
