2018 Scholarships

2018 Volunteer Scholarships

Volunteerism plays a critical role in the Lemont community, and is the cornerstone of the Lemont Junior Woman’s Club.  Our organization is comprised of women in the community who are dedicated to raising funds and volunteering for the betterment of Lemont and the surrounding communities.

To recognize the efforts of those who demonstrate a commitment to volunteerism, the LJWC is offering three $1,500 scholarships to high school seniors or adult women returning to school who live in Lemont. The scholarship may be used for tuition, room and board, books, or other educational purposes. The winner will be selected based on his or her commitment to volunteerism, academic and extracurricular performance, and written expression.

If you would like to apply, complete the appropriate application and answer the essay question. Essays should be typed, double-spaced and no more than 500 words in length.

In addition to the application and essay, please provide two letters of recommendation. These should be either submitted in sealed envelopes, or mailed directly to the LJWC. Recommendations may come from a principal, school counselor, teacher, employer or volunteer supervisor. References will be contacted, so please include phone numbers on the application.
