Lawton Community Foundation Scholars

The Trustees of the Lawton Community Foundation provide a one-year, $2,000 scholarship in each high school of the Lawton, Frederick, Elgin, Geronimo and Cache public school districts for the purpose of encouraging students to pursue post-secondary education in a college or technical institution.

Eligible applicants for the Lawton Community Foundation Scholars program must meet the following criteria:

Financial need is considered.

Funds may be used for educational-related expenses such as tuition, fees and books at any academically accredited two- year, four-year or vocational technical nonprofit institution in the United States. Payments are made directly to the school.
