Cedar Hill Student Scholarship Program

2020 scholarship application process is now OPEN. 

The Cedar Hill Lions Club Charities, Inc. is accepting applications for the Cedar Hill Lions Club Charities Scholarship Program. We will award the $1,000 scholarships to up to three 2020 graduating high school seniors who now reside in the City of Cedar Hill as they pursue their educational goals at an accredited college or university within the United States.

We will disburse these one-time $1,000 scholarships in two $500 payments made directly to each recipient for the 2020 fall and 2021 spring semesters. The student must provide a copy of the fall and spring semester statements in order to verify enrollment.

To be considered, applicants must

  • have a 2.5 or higher GPA (based on the 4.0 system)
  • submit a current high school transcript
  • be a current year graduate physically residing in Cedar Hill, Texas, excepting that early class of 2020 graduates living away while attending an institution of higher learning in Spring 2020 must have their official residence in Cedar Hill
  • plan to pursue higher education in fall 2020
  • submit a 3-5 page (double-spaced) essay about the importance and benefits of community service. They should draw especially upon their own community service experiences and plans
  • Submit a one or two paragraph (at least) statement of the applicant's need for and expected benefits of scholarship assistance
  • Submit a completed Lions scholarship application
  • Supply at least three letters of recommendation, to include
    • At least one from an educator (administrator and/or teacher)
    • At least one from a local business person, government official, employer, non-related Cedar Hill resident, or Lion
    • At least one from another person familiar with the applicant's community service

The deadline to apply is April 20, 2020 and mailed applications must be postmarked on or before that date. Recipients' schools will be notified of the Scholarship Committee's decision on April 30, 2020.

We will de-identify the applicants' materials as to name, gender, ethnicity, etc., before submitting them to an independent panel for review and ranking. Selection will be heavily weighted towards the community service essay and will not be based principally upon need or grades.
