Generous donors to the Lexington Community Foundation have established more than $850,000 in scholarship funds that benefit students in Lexington, Nebraska and Dawson County. Students must create an account on Academic Works (no paper applications for Local or Lexington Community Foundation scholarships). High School students are required to have two recommenders (enter email information for the recommenders who are teachers or from outside the school who is not a relative of the family. Please read the scholarship description, as specifics to this requirement can be found there). Individual criteria will vary by scholarship.
