Jackson Lions Club Offers In-College Scholarships

Each fall, the Jackson Lions Club offers a limited number of $2,000 in-college scholarships. The competitive scholarships are available to graduates of Amador County high schools, which include Argonaut High School, Amador High School, North Star and Independence High School. The annual awards are available to full-time college students of junior or senior standing.

When applying for an in-college scholarship in the fall, please send a copy of your high school diploma. Eligible candidates should have a good GPA and must be registered and attending Fall classes full time with a minimum of 12 units. Please provide evidence of this attendance requirement after your college’s final Fall semester or quarter “drop date” by sending an official verification transcript (unsealed is acceptable) from the registrar or attendance office of the college currently attended. Also include unofficial transcripts of all previous college coursework.

Submit all of the above with a brief letter describing your academic and career goals as well as school funding status. Include your phone number, email address and current residential mailing address. Mail all of the above in one envelope between August 31 and November 1 to Scholarship Chairman, Jackson Lions Club, P.O. Box 64, Jackson, CA 95642.
