The LHS Alumni Scholarship is for Lathrop students who were at one time underachieving students who later applied themselves and desired to continue their education at a university or technical school. They attend LHS for three years and have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.25 and have demonstrated significant academic improvement in the last two years before graduation, or a cumulative GPA is at least 3.0.
The scholarship fund initially started as a non-endowed fund of $6,000. Once it reaches $15,000 a $2,000 scholarship will be awarded.
When the Fund reaches $50,000 or greater, it will become an endowed fund. At that time only 4-5% of the FMV may be spent annually for scholarships This will be a permanent fund for LHS scholarships. As the fund balance grows, the scholarship spendable will increase each year.
Please include your class year in the Additional Instructions field when donating.
