Scholarships

For a Brighter Acadiana

$40,000 Worth of Scholarships per Year

If you applied to win a scholarship this year, your sponsoring member must attend our Annual Meeting on June 1st at the Cajundome.  We will award 20 college scholarships worth $2,000 each by random drawing at the meeting.  Entry cards will be mailed to applicants during the week of May 18th.

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 Louisiana University or Community College.

Applications will be accepted from February 1st through the first Thursday of May each year. Applications are mailed in all February bills and are available at all area high school guidance counselor offices, the scholarship offices at UL, LSUE or SLCC. During application time, they’re also available to download here.
