December 3, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Scholarship Description:
Latinas Promoviendo Comunidad/Lambda Pi Chi Sorority, Inc. (“Lambda Pi Chi”) was established on April 16, 1988 at Cornell University as the first U.S. Latina-focused sorority founded at an Ivy-league institution.  Lambda Pi Chi works to empower women by providing a supportive network dedicated to their personal and professional advancement.  Their members promote public service and cultural awareness with an emphasis on the Latino/a experience, and are committed to personal, professional, and academic achievement.  To that end, Lambda Pi Chi has established an annual College Book Scholarship for high school seniors who are highly motivated, and committed to community service and academic excellence. The College Book Scholarship is part of Lambda Pi Chi’s Proyecto H.A.C.E.R. (Hermanas Advancing Career and Educational Resources) and will be open to female high school seniors attending high schools in the host city of Lambda Pi Chi’s Annual National Convention.

Lambda Pi Chi will select two high school students who will receive a one-time award of $500 for first place or $250 for second place to assist them in covering the costs of textbooks and/or school supplies for the first year of college.  Lambda Pi Chi’s Scholarship Committee will consider academic achievement, leadership potential, and community involvement during the selection process.
