Mono Lake Committee Scholarship

Since 2008 the Mono Lake Committee has awarded the Mono Lake Committee Scholarship to support local college-bound students.

Each year the Committee awards up to two $1,000 scholarships to students pursuing higher education who display a personal connection with Mono Lake and the Mono Lake story. Mono County resident high school seniors who have firm plans to attend a two- or four-year college within a year of graduation qualify for the Mono Lake Committee Scholarship.

Students must visit Mono Lake and respond to this question:

Why do places like Mono Lake matter?
