Lynn Weekley Scholarship
Gwinnett County Habitat for Humanity is pleased to announce the establishment of the Lynn Weekley Volunteer College Scholarship to benefit college-bound high school seniors that reside in a Gwinnett Habitat Home and/or active participants in our Habitat Campus Clubs. The Lynn Weekley Volunteer Scholarship is named after our first paid Volunteer Coordinator that served our affiliated faithfully for 20 years. The recipient will embody Mrs. Weekley’s dedication to volunteerism and will have exhibited actions in keeping with the mission of Gwinnett County Habitat for Humanity. The application contains additional criteria.
The scholarship comes from earmarked donations and from a portion of general donation given to the affiliate. The scholarship fund receives NO general homebuilding donations.
The Homeowner Support Committee will choose award recipients each school-year. The affiliate will endeavor to present the scholarship award at the school’s Awards Assembly or similar gathering, in cooperation with school staff.
A student may apply for consideration by filling out an application available at the Gwinnett County Habitat for Humanity office or on the Gwinnett Habitat website: www.habitatgwinnett.org. The deadline for submitting an application is March 31, 2018.
