Lyndon Promise Scholarship

Lyndon is aware of the extraordinary economic circumstances affecting our country. Many families sending their students to college in the years to come face financial uncertainties that may affect their ability to pay for college over the entire four years.

In response to these circumstances, we have established the renewable Lyndon Promise Scholarship. This scholarship is offered to qualified students and is renewable over four years if eligibility criteria are met.

Requests for the Lyndon Promise Scholarship will be accepted as long as funds remain available each year. The scholarship committee will meet prior to the end of May to begin determining recipients.
