What happens once you get a LSSF Scholarship?

Congratulations on your award!  Here is some helpful information now that you have received a scholarship award.

  • After the Awards Ceremony, recipients will receive an email containing a brief description of the award and how the scholarship was made available to them, and contact info for the donor or donors. 
  • VERY IMPORTANT: All recipients are required to send an acknowledgment note of thanks and a photo to the donor who made their scholarship possible.
  • The email will also contain instructions on how to accept the scholarship through the application web site. The recipient should accept the scholarship by June 15th.
  • Once the scholarship has been accepted and a thank you has been sent to the donor or donors, a check will be processed to the college or university the student will be attending, and will then be sent directly to the student in late-June. It is the student's responsibility to forward his/her check to their college or university's financial department for processing.
  • If you are planning to take a gap year, no problem - just let us know and we will hold your award for you when you are ready to begin your college studies.
  •  PLEASE NOTE: If a student misplaces a check, they must send an email to LSSF with a request to stop payment of the lost check. Once the lost check request has been received by us, a new check will distributed per the above distribution procedures, minus a $35 stop payment fee.
