College Scholarships

  • College expenses continue to rise at a faster pace than the general cost of living.  In today’s ever-changing world, our youth need the ability to learn and adapt at a quick pace.  The Lake Park High School Educational Foundation awards over $20,000 annually to graduating seniors.
    The Lake Park Educational Foundation encourages you to assist a graduating senior in pursuing a higher education and striving to excel.  Through the scholarship program, you can foster students’ education beyond high school so that they can transform their passions into successful careers.  The Foundation’s scholarship program encourages all of our students to strive for their own personal excellence.
    There are two ways you can help Lake Park students through the scholarship program:
    • You can establish a scholarship in memory of a loved one or in honor of that individual.  The Foundation’s Executive Director will meet with you to determine the selection criteria you would like in establishing the scholarship.  Named scholarships usually range from $500 - $5,000 annually.  A minimum three-year commitment is required to establish a named scholarship.

    • You can contribute any amount to the Lake Park Educational Foundation’s EXCEL scholarship or Alumni scholarship.
