The Valladolid Council No. 70 Scholarship Program annually awards financial aid to students accepted to accredited institutions of higher education.
Scholarships will be awarded on the basis of several criteria: financial need, scholastic ability, character, community and extracurricular activities, as well as school guidance counselor input when available. Awards are made without consideration of race, creed, sexual identity, national origin or immigration status.
The decision of the Lynn Knights of Columbus Scholarship Governing Board will be announced in the third week in May of each year. However, no scholarship award will be made if in the opinion of the Scholarship Governing Board there are no qualified applicants.
The application deadline has been extended to May 14, 2021, mailed to:
