The purpose of the Scholarship Committee is to award non-repayable grants to deserving students who are either graduates or attendees of Canton Lincoln Junior or Senior high School or their descendants. Descendants include child(ren), grandchild(ren), great-grandchild(ren), step-child(ren), adopted child(ren), or spouse of attendees or graduates who are paid members of CLHSAA for the current calendar year. If the applicant's only lineal Lincoln ancestor is deceased, then the paid membership requirement is waived.

The Scholarship Committee will consider all applicants for grants regardless of race, color, creed, religion, sex, or national origin. All information supplied by applicants is strictly confidential with exception of names, addresses, telephone numbers, and names of ancestors who attended Canton Lincoln Junior or Senior High School.

CLHSAA reserves the right to determine the amount and number of grants to be presented in any year. Scholarships are awarded to students who are pursuing ANY type of post high school education at ANY type of accredited school; i.e., college, junior college, technical, or trade schools. Checks are made payable to each student's school. An Awards Reception where presentations are announced and recipients honored is planned for July.

Applicants may apply every year; however, scholarship recipients are eligible only every third year, with a lifetime maximum of two CLHSAA scholarships. (In other words, add three to the year that you received your first scholarship to determine the next year in which you are eligible to apply.) Students interested in applying for a CLHSAA grant for the 2024-2025 school year should use the application and special address found on the 2024` Scholarship Grant Application Form. Postmark deadline for submitting 2024 scholarship applications and all required materials is March 30, 2024.
