To apply for the Dick & Chris Draper Scholarship, applicants must be a current graduating senior of Elgin Public High School or Elgin Pope John XXIII Central Catholic High School, having completed all four years of high school at one or both schools. The applicant must have a cumulative GPA of 3.25 or higher on a 4.0 scale. While financial need is not part of the selection criteria, this scholarship will not be awarded to any student who receives another scholarship which sufficiently finances all tuition, fees and books.
The Lincoln Community Foundation is a catalyzing force that seeks to create a better future for our community. Improving our city goes beyond making grants that advance charitable activities and helping donors make charitable gifts to support local nonprofit organizations. Generous donors to Lincoln Community Foundation have established more than 90 scholarship funds that benefit students in Nebraska. Applications run from the middle of December until the due date.
