The Lapeer County Republican Party is proud to announce they are offering a $1,000 college scholarship to graduating seniors residing in Lapeer County. The recipient of the scholarship will be determined by a written essay. The topic of the 2020 essay is “Does the average American understand what socialism means? Tell us how you think a socialist government would affect a United States citizen.” The essay and a completed application form must be received by Monday, February 24, 2020.
The essay and application forms are available at Lapeer County’s local high school counseling offices and also available here on our GOP web site: Click HERE to go to a printable 2020 Scholarship application.
Applicants are invited free of charge and should plan on attending the Lincoln Dinner, held at the Lapeer Country Club on March 21, 2020, for recognition and for the announcement of the winner. We also ask that they attend the Lapeer County Republican Party Executive Meeting on Thursday, April 16th, 2019 at the Deerfield Township Hall (30 Burnside Road, North Branch, MI 48461) for the presentation of the award.
