The Committee for the Lincoln Memorial Tournament is accepting applications for 2021 scholarships. This reverent event was founded by former Lincoln Member, Beth Smith, after the death of her husband, Don Smith. The tournament was created to honor active Lincoln members who passed away in the preceding membership year, and to raise funds for our youth to use to help pay college or vocational/technical school expenses. The proceeds from the event are placed into an advised investment fund with the Muskegon Community Foundation. At year end the fund balance was over $82,000.
Each year a scholarship is awarded to one or more graduating high school seniors who are the son, daughter, or grandchild (step-children included) of a Lincoln Stockholder Member. The number and amount of scholarships are determined by the Scholarship Committee.
Interested high school seniors must submit their application package no later than April 15th, 2021. These scholarships are competitive and not all applicants are assured award. An application can be downloaded from the link below or by contacting Jeff Gates at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applications due: April 15, 2021
