The Lower Merion Township Scholarship Fund (LMTSF)

LMTSF was founded in 1965 for the purpose of providing financial assistance to graduates of the Lower Merion public high schools who demonstrate financial need. All students who apply and are determined to have financial need will receive financial help. The LMTSF Board of Governors are volunteers. All financial information provided by applicants is forwarded directly to our financial consultant, who does not reside in Lower Merion Township. The consultant determines the amount of need for each applicant. The LMTSF Board members never see any individual financial information.




  The Following options are available to make your tax-free contribution to the Fund. 1. Send a check to: Lower Merion Township Scholarship Fund PO Box 346 Ardmore, PA 19003 Be sure to indicate in the memo section if you wish to apply your gift to a special award. 2. Make a Contribution using PayPal: 3. Through United Way, checking donor option #08407.

 4. Purchase Tribute Cards from your school HSA: The cards ($15 each or 3/$40) are purchased and used to remember friends and relatives on anniversaries, birthdays, confirmation, graduation days, and all occasions, sad or joyful. These cards do not conflict with the LMSD policy of gifts to teachers and are a perfect tribute to educators you want to recognize or thank. Cards can be purchased through your H.S.A..  If you do not have a child in school, you can contact any board member or call the Fund at 610-645-1893.
