The Women's Division of the Leavenworth-Lansing Area Chamber of Commerce is offering two scholarships beginning spring 2007. One will be offered to traditional students just entering college and the other will be for non-traditional students who already have a high school diploma or GED.
Women who are current residents of Leavenworth County are eligible. They must fill out an application and include a one-page essay on why they chose their course of study and what they plan to do with it. Transcripts as well as a character reference letter will also be required. An interview may be required.
Applications have been sent to area high schools.
