The Scholarship Fund is a community effort to provide need-based scholarships to assist graduates of Lower Merion School District’s public high schools pursue higher education. The Fund is a 501(c)(3) organization that draws support from the schools, alumni, school families, community businesses, and neighbors. Founded in 1964, the Scholarship Fund has provided over 4,000 need based and renewable grants totaling approximately $3,000,000 to our students.
LMTSF grants are available to graduates who plan to attend, on a full-time basis, any college, university, nursing school, or approved vocational or technical school. Lower Merion School District graduates, who are currently attending colleges or other approved schools, may also be eligible. We are proud that we are able to help all of our students with demonstrated financial need.
Contributions can be made in honor of or in memoriam of a special individual or event. You may also purchase an online Recognition Card ($15 each or 3 for $40) to honor a teacher, coach, staff member, or student. Please consider making a tax deductible donation and support the youth of the Lower Merion School District.
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.
