2016 will mark the 10th year that Lynden International Lodge has offered scholarships to deserving high school seniors. Three $1,000.00 scholarships for continuing education are awarded to qualified seniors in the Blaine, Lynden and Meridian School districts each year.
Information about the scholarship program is provided to the counselors at the three school districts shortly after the new year begins in January. Applications, including current high school transcripts and a one-page essay based on the interests and future plans of the applicants, are due in March.
Judging of the applications is by members of the Lodge and somehow, someway, the cream always rises to the top although often the applicants all are so good that a final choice is difficult.
The scholarships are awarded by representatives of the Lodge at the awards ceremony held by each school district in the late Spring.
For further information just contact Lodge Secretary, Richard Decima, at (360) 392-0145.
