We will be mailing letters to each of you with instructions on how you will receive your $2,000 for college or trade school.

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.
