For a Brighter Acadiana
$40,000 Worth of Scholarships This Year
The SLEMCO Scholarship application deadline has passed.
If you submitted an application, please make sure to attend the annual meeting on June 11 at the Cajun Dome. Remember, the recipients will be chosen in a random drawing at the June 11 annual meeting. The sponsoring member (or member’s spouse) must be present at the meeting. If the sponsoring member is not present at the meeting, the student will not receive the scholarship should his/her name be called.

Each year SLEMCO members can enter a random drawing to win one of 20 college scholarships worth $2,000 each for either themselves or their dependent children. The funds can be used by undergraduate students to attend any public or private Louisiana University or trade school as accredited by the University of Louisiana System; Louisiana State University System, Southern University System, Louisiana Community and Technical College System, Louisiana Board of Regents Proprietary School System, Louisiana Association of Independent Colleges and Universities or the US Department of Education. Graduate or doctoral students do not qualify.
