Promoting Education for Landings Employees
The Landlovers Scholarship Fund is designed to assist Landings employees and their immediate dependent family members with expenses for post-high-school education. Scholarship grants are for tuition, books and school supplies. Applicants must be employees of The Landings Association or The Landings Company, their spouses or their dependent children.
To qualify for a scholarship each applicant must submit a written application telling about his or her academic background and future academic plans, as well as submit high school or post secondary school transcript.
Each scholarship applicant will also be interviewed by the Landlovers Foundation Scholarship Committee to discuss future plans and how the scholarship will help achieve their goals.
The required interview with the Scholarship Committee will follow the application deadline.
Funds will be paid directly to the chosen school following the student’s enrollment.
