The Paul Lauzier Scholarship Foundation was created pursuant to the Last Will and Testament of Paul Lauzier. Scholarships are awarded annually to graduating seniors and alumni of Grant County, Washington high schools who attend a college or vocational school within the state of Washington. Students pursuing graduate degrees are also eligible for scholarship awards. Students receiving scholarship awards must attend school on a full-time basis.
Scholastic achievement is part of the evaluation process, however, it is not controlling. Traits such as community and school involvement, integrity, work ethic, and leadership are strongly considered. The foundation closely evaluates the quality of curriculum each applicant is taking. Other factors include the caliber of the personal statement, letter of recommendation, and the overall quality of the completed application. Applicants who fail to follow directions are quickly eliminated from consideration.
All scholarship awards are made at the sole discretion of the Paul Lauzier Foundation Trustee.
Scholarships are awarded on an annual basis. Students may apply for a scholarship each academic year regardless of whether or not he or she has been previously selected to receive an award. Prior recipients are not assured of receiving future scholarships. Each academic year involves an entirely new selection process. Students pursuing a trade or vocational technical education are encouraged to apply.
