Each year the Mono Lake Committee supports local students pursuing higher education and displaying a connection to Mono Lake with two $1,000 scholarships. High school seniors living in Mono County with firm plans to attend a 2- or 4-year college within a year of graduation are eligible to apply.
Students are asked to visit Mono Lake and answer the question: Why do places like Mono Lake matter?
The application can be found here, and the deadline to apply is Friday May 11, 2018 by 5:00pm.
You can find essays written by past recipients here. If you have questions regarding the application or would like to donate to the scholarship fund please contact Gabrielle Renteria by email or by calling (760) 647-6595 x103.
