Lakeport Women’s Civic Club offers vocational scholarships

LAKEPORT, Calif. – The Lakeport Women’s Civic Club is offering two $1,000 vocational school scholarships to graduating high school students and second-year students from Mendocino College and Yuba College.

“Vocational” typically implies a two-year course of study at a junior college or specialty school of some type.

Certification programs offered by junior colleges or specialty schools would be classified as “vocational” no matter the length of study.

All Lake County high schools have applications on hand. They may be obtained from the school counselors. Mendocino and Yuba Colleges also have applications and second-year students are encouraged to apply. Previous applicants and former graduates are also welcome to reapply!

The deadline for all applications is April 24.

Applicants must: be a Lake County resident; be currently enrolled as a full-time student (carrying 12 units or more); have a 2.75-grade point average in all course work attempted; list all work and community involvement; state reasons for applying for this scholarship and why this particular field; and submit two letters of recommendation, one preferably from an employer.

The Lakeport Women’s Civic Club strongly supports those students seeking vocational careers.

Every community relies heavily upon hygienists, lab techs, hairdressers, electricians, plumbers and mechanics. Just think how happy you are to see the dishwasher repairman.

LWCC takes great pride in helping to encourage young people in developing these vocational skills.

For more information reach out to your high school counselor or call Debra Fredrickson at 707-289-4417.
