Lobo Nation you heard it here first! Earlier this month the scholarship committee worked incredibly hard to review close to 100 applications from graduating seniors and alumni Lobos. It was inspiring, and incredibly difficult to choose our Scholarship Class of 2021 but we did it and wanted to share with you!

Since 2013, in partnership with our generous community, the Foundation has been able to award at-least 40 graduating seniors with scholarship support, and on average invest over $40,000, per-year. Since 2018, we have started our Alumni Scholarship program awarding Elsie Allen Alumni who are continuing their post-secondary education. Every year we have been able to invest more!

Today we are incredibly proud to report the highlights of what you have helped us accomplish for the EAHSF Scholarship Class of 2021. This year we have provided the most scholarships in the history of our Foundation — 88 total scholarships awarded; 37 graduating seniors; 26 Alumni; and $75,500 will be directly invested in our most promising youth!
