The Triangle Connection Scholarship
At a recent meeting the Steering Committee of The Triangle Connection agreed to explore the possibility of establishing a scholarship for area high school students pursuing further education.
We are pleased to announce that one or two such scholarships in the amount of $500.00 will be available this year, through the auspices of The Educational Foundation of Lake County. Carman Cullen-Batt, the Executive Director of the EFLC, will announce the scholarships the week of April 17.
The successful applicant will be a graduating senior with a 2.5 or higher grade point average who has been a member of his or her high school’s Gay/Straight Alliance. The funds will be paid directly to the institution (university, college, or trade school) to defray the cost of the student’s tuition, fees, or books.
A delegation from the Steering Committee will participate in the selection of the winner or winners.
Students interested in applying for The Triangle Connection Scholarship should contact their Guidance Counselor for the application form.
