Scholarship Application Open: January 15, 2024 - March 15, 2024

The LHS Alumni Scholarship is for Lathrop students who were at one time underachieving or struggling 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 in 2019 as a non-endowed fund of $6,000. After it  reached $15,000 a $2,000 scholarship was awarded in 2020.

In March 2021 the fund reached $50,000 and qualified to be an endowed fund. This will be a permanent fund for LHS scholarships.
