While the scholarship is only for one year, the student can apply for a
scholarship each year that he/she is in school and working towards the
completion of the initial degree/program, for the "normal" term of their program
based on full-time enrollment, four years or until termination from the
educational facility, whichever comes first.
This means that a traditional four year college-bound student may be awarded as
much as $10,000! Two-year program enrollees can be awarded as much as $5,000!
The scholarships are awarded by random drawing so each applicant has chance to
win. An applicant can only receive one scholarship award per year. Each
applicant may be eligible for additional entries in the drawing based on
academic performance, LCBA membership and LCBA fraternal involvement (see Bonus
The odds of winning are based on the number of applicants and the number of
additional or bonus entries applicants are awarded.
