Liberty Utilities is offering academic scholarships for eligible California high school and college students in its service territory.
Seven schools participating in the second annual scholarship program are South Tahoe High School, Loyalton High School, Douglas High School (students living in Alpine County only), Coleville High School, North Tahoe High School, Portola High School and Lake Tahoe Community College.
“We’re very pleased to be able to offer these scholarships to deserving students,” said Mike Smart, president of Liberty Utilities-California. “We’re also happy that we were able to increase the scholarship amounts this year.”
The six high school scholarships are $500 each, an increase from $250. High school seniors must have community service experience, a minimum unweighted GPA of 2.5 and be accepted to an accredited four-year or two-year university or college or accredited vocational school.
The Lake Tahoe Community College scholarship is $750, an increase from $500. Students are eligible if they have a 2.5 GPA or higher and have completed at least 18 quarter units at LTCC. They also must be enrolled in the upcoming fall quarter and have demonstrated community leadership.
Interested students should contact their school’s financial aid office or counselor to ask about the scholarships and get an application. Individual schools have different deadlines, but all scholarships will be awarded starting mid-May through June.
