Downtown San Diego Lions Club Scholarship Fund
The Downtown San Diego Lions Club, through its Welfare Foundation, has scholarship assistance available to students graduating from Hoover, Garfield, Kearny, Lincoln, Monarch, Touissant, Twain, Gompers, and San Diego High Schools. These high schools are in the geographical operating area of the Downtown San Diego Lions Club.
This scholarship assists graduates in pursuing education at an community college or vocational school of their choice. Scholarships of $1,200 are awarded to each student selected.
The Downtown San Diego Lions Club seeks individuals who have demonstrated, and will continue to demonstrate, a desire to serve their communities. We wish to foster this spirit of community service in the youth who will receive the scholarships. For this reason scholarships will be awarded based on merit, financial need, and demonstrated community service.
Applicants should complete the application form, financial data form, and provide their high school transcripts. The application can be obtained from your school counselor in early February of each year. Applicants must be a U.S. citizens or legal residents with an alien registration card.
All applicants should submit an essay explaining why they deserve the scholarship, which should include all activity outside of studies that can be shown to be beneficial to others, including own family members (house helper and job related services), musical, sports, civic groups, church, etc.
