Connecting Generations Scholarship Program
The Connecting Generations Scholarship Program has been established in order to recognize the contributions of outstanding youth volunteers who have demonstrated a high level of commitment to Lyngblomsten through volunteerism and to support their decision to attend an institution of higher learning.
The Lyngblomsten Volunteer Programs and Services Department, working with the Lyngblomsten Foundation, will make scholarships available to qualified Lyngblomsten youth volunteers upon completion of high school graduation. These scholarships are to be used for further education at a college, university, technical school, or an accredited school in holistic therapies. The dollar amount of the scholarship will be determined by the number of qualified applicants and the amount of money in the Youth Volunteer Scholarship fund.
