Your Support Means Rabun County High School Seniors Can Reach Their Goals!
"Receiving the Lake Burton Association Scholarship has been a huge blessing for me and my family. With my brother and I both in college this year, my parents were concerned about meeting the needs for both of us, especially with the pandemic happening. Most of my classes have been online and are very time consuming, leaving me less time to work. Without this scholarship I would have been struggling to juggle college and work. Currently, I have a 92 GPA and am an officer in the Student Government Association. I am so thankful and blessed by LBCA having faith in me, and I’m working hard to not only make you proud, but to take advantage of every opportunity available to me. Thank you so much for this blessing!”
These above quotes are from two of the 29 Rabun County students who were LBCA Foundation Scholarship recipients in 2020. These scholarships were provided through generous donations by LBCA members like you!
In 2020, six "Named Memorial/Honorary Multi-Year Scholarships" were awarded. These scholarships provided students with annual support for four years at a university ($1,250 - $3,000/yr.) or two years at a technical school ($750/yr.). In addition, 23 individual one-year scholarships were awarded ($2,000 - $2,500).
Because of Your Generosity, We are so Close to Our Goal!
Thank you for responding to the call! We have raised $96,000 for the 2021 Rabun County Seniors. We only need to raise $4,000 more to hit our goal. If you have not donated yet, please do so today!
This year’s goal is to double the number of Named Memorial/Honorary Multi-Year Scholarships awarded and increase the number of One-Time Scholarships given. Because of you, we are almost there!
There are two ways to contribute to a scholarship online:
1. One-Time Scholarship:
2. Two-Year or Four-Year Named Memorial/Honorary Scholarship
Select the type of Scholarship to which you would like to contribute and complete the requested information. Selections for scholarships will be made in the spring of 2021. Before the fall semester, the LBCA Foundation will mail a check directly to the university or technical school where the funds will be directly applied to the student’s account to help cover expenses associated with his/her education.
Thank you for joining your Lake Burton friends and neighbors in supporting worthy Rabun County students. Remember, your scholarship fund contribution through the LBCA Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization, is tax deductible.
