Applications for scholarships open December 15th and close on February 23rd.
The Foundation has always worked to provide LPS students with the means to reach for their dreams, and maximize their own potential. Over the years, many generous individuals, businesses, and organizations have established funds at the Foundation. Because we care deeply about the quality of education available to our students, we work together with the Lincoln community to help students achieve their educational goals. Applications will open for scholarships on December 15th.

"The one thing I love about Scholarships is that they all have the same goal in mind; they all want to help students as much as they can and that's why they give out these awards.
