We are officially kicking off our 2021 Lakewood IBPA Senior Scholarship Drive!
We ask for your support and donation to our scholarship fund for the Class of 2021 Lakewood High School IB Diploma candidates. Lakewood High School’s International Baccalaureate program, chartered in 1996, has flourished during the past 24 years to become one of Colorado’s largest and most successful IB programs.
To attain an IB Diploma, students pursue rigorous curricula in all core academic courses, as well as foreign-language study in every year of high school. Each of these highly motivated students also writes an extended research paper working independently with a faculty adviser, completes written and oral exams, and prepares Internal Assessment projects in most core classes. IB students also contribute meaningfully to service-related volunteer activities each year.
The LHS IB Class of 2021 displays impressive potential to make significant future contributions, and nearly all of these exceptional students wish to pursue undergraduate degrees. As they submit college applications this year, they will seek scholarships and grants, discovering such funds in short supply. The already high cost of college increases each year, leaving talented IB students and their families to face mounting challenges to cover higher-education costs. While the LHS IB program opens doors to top-notch universities, far too often financial obstacles prevent IB students from accepting those opportunities.
Please help LHS IB graduates realize their college goals! In 2009, the non-profit LHS IB Parents Association established a scholarship fund for graduating IB seniors, starting with two $1,000 awards. The idea was so well received that the scholarship fund has continued to grow over the years. In 2020, we awarded scholarships to seven deserving IB seniors and we hope to award many more 2021 scholarships at the Senior Banquet in May. LHS - IBPA membership is required for families of scholarship applicants.
Your contribution to the LHS - IBPA Scholarship Fund is tax-deductible. Every dollar you donate will be included in the scholarships awarded. Thank you for considering a contribution of $100 or any amount your circumstances will permit.
Please submit your donation no later than Friday, April 30, 2021. Scholarship winners will be announced in May 2021.
