Lee County, IA – The Community Foundation of North Lee County, an affiliate of the Community Foundation of the Great River Bend, is excited to announce a scholarship opportunity available to graduating seniors who are entering 2-year degree or certificate programs.

The Lawrence and Marilyn Matteson Foundation Scholarship was established in 2012 to assist graduating seniors from select area high schools pursuing degrees leading to careers in career & technical programs or engineering. Examples of 2-year degree or certificate programs include fields like construction, technology, industrial production, electronics, or similar fields.

Seniors from the following high schools are eligible to apply: Central Lee, Danville, Fort Madison, Keokuk, Mediapolis, Mount Pleasant, New London, Waco, Wapello, Winfield and home school students who live in these school districts.

Scholarships will be awarded for either $1000 or $2000 for the 2013-14 school year. Students who make adequate academic progress can qualify for a second year of funding, at the same amount as the first year.

For the 2013-14 academic year, applications will be accepted until March 31, 2013. A panel of volunteers who live in the Lee County region will review applications and select recipients. Recipients will be notified by the end of June and scholarship checks mailed to the student's college or program by the end of August, 2013.
