Four At-Risk Students to Receive $10,000 Scholarships to UL-Lafayette
The Pay It Forward Scholarship Foundation, established by Acadiana attorney Glenn Armentor, will soon be announcing the 4 new recipients of the $10,000 Scholarship Program of Excellence.
On Wednesday, March 30, finalist interviews will take place throughout the day at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Foundation, ending in the selection of the 4 recipient. The student's names will be released by the committee the following day.
The scholarships are awarded to underprivileged students that continue to excel regardless of life conditions. Selection is made by an independent panel of community leaders based on a combination of attributes including: student performance, drive, ability, need and desire to seek a college degree from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
Since its inception and first recipient in 2010, over 20 $10,000 scholarships have been awarded. Born of the desire to further deepen the connection amongst the scholarship's recipients and to build leadership skills, the scholarship program has expanded to incorporate a mentorship component, as well as an annual luncheon.
To date, more than $225,000 has been awarded over 6 years to provide scholarships for students attending the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, South Louisiana Community College and Louisiana State University Law School.
