Linden Scholarship

College is expensive. We never want a student to miss out on the opportunity to continue their education because they lack financial support. This scholarship is our way to help remove financial barriers. Meet the 2016 scholarship winners.

Students can apply to receive a one-year, non-renewable scholarship of $1,500 (for two-year colleges) or $3,000 (for four-year colleges). We know it won’t foot the entire bill, but every little bit counts. The application period opens each January.

  • Applicant must be a high school senior who plans to obtain an undergraduate degree
  • Applicant must be an active volunteer in the community (past experience considered)
