Now is the time to prepare your application documents in order to submit them to us by July 24, 2021; we will be accepting and reviewing submissions received prior to July 24, 2021. We request your compilation be the absolute best possible submission for a scholarship.

We are also excited to further promote the newly established The Lennox Family Excellence Award. For the upcoming academic year, it will grant a $1,500 scholarship to one full-time university student pursuing a degree specifically in education (i.e. – teachers, administrators, and policy makers); in turn, supporting future educators who will effectuate meaningful and long lasting changes in American schools upon commencing their career. The remainder of the requirements are also on our website.
