Published DateLACONIA — The Lakes Region Scholarship Foundation announces that applications are now available for the 2013-14 scholastic year.
"Eligibility requirements are primarily established by donors," explained Paulette Loughlin, president of LRSF. "The majority of LRSF awards are restricted and were established for residents of Belmont, Gilford and Laconia – or – graduates of Laconia High School, Belmont High School, or Gilford High School (including residents of Canterbury and Gilmanton covered under SAU district umbrellas). However, students should check the applicant section of the website for a list of twenty-six exceptions, including the Annalee Thorndike Art Competition and the John F. Mullen Essay Competition.
"Detailed requirements for these "exception" scholarships are provided on our website" said Loughlin, who also noted that "In addition to scholarship information, a list of all our donors is available in the donor section of our website. In 2012, thanks to the generosity of 213 donor funds, a total of $235,300 was awarded to 314 recipients."
Joan Cormier, LRSF Executor Director, says that applications may be mailed to PO Box 7312, Gilford NH 03247-7312 or delivered to the office at the DeCamp Center, 14 Country Club Road, Gilford by April 15, 2013.
