Each year the Mono Lake Committee supports local students with plans to attend college or other vocational training within a year of graduation who display a personal connection with Mono Lake and the Mono Lake story. We award two Mono County students with $1,000 scholarships who can share why places like Mono Lake matter to them and to the world. We encourage the students to go down to the lakeshore and write an essay about their connection to this special place.
If you are interested in applying, you can find the application here. The application deadline is 5:00pm on Tuesday, May 17, 2022.
If you would like to read the essays of past scholarship recipients, you can find them here. If you have questions regarding the application, or would like to donate to the scholarship fund, please contact me by email or at (760) 647-6595.
