What is the Lawnside Scholarship Club?
The Lawnside Scholarship Club was founded in 1945 to award scholarships to deserving local residents who plan to pursue higher education or trade school. Members are present and former Lawnside residents committed to helping our students prepare for, attend and complete college. The Club is tax-exempt under IRS code 501(c)(3). The Club awards scholarships to Lawnside residents and administers awards from individuals, community groups and civic organizations.
For Members of the Class of 2020
Students who have lived in Lawnside at least four years before graduating from any high school, were eligible for awards presented by the Club to students with the four highest grade point averages, particular career goals, excellence in specific subjects, musical, artistic or athletic talent and much more. Graduating seniors were honored July 25 at a Virtual Salute to Seniors and Awards Celebration hosted by the NAACP Camden County East Youth Council. Review a copy of the program booklet here. Printed copies will be available by request to sending email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate your name, address and the number of booklets you would like.
Each senior was asked to supply a portrait, a list of patrons and information about his or her plans for the future to the Club for inclusion in our luncheon program booklet.
The Club presents book awards as well. Go to the Scholarship Request Form

The Club wants to get to know you through our mentoring program. You are never too young to start thinking about and planning for college. That means choosing the right courses and making good grades which qualify you for awards, scholarships and special recognition. Consult with your parents and guidance counselor, start reviewing colleges you’d like to attend now.
The Cost of Higher Education
Tuition, textbooks and other costs of attending college continue to climb. The Club will gladly accept unrestricted gifts from the public. Tax-deductible contributions can be sent to the Club at P.O. Box 66, Lawnside, NJ 08045-0066. For more ideas on how to help the Club, visit the Contributions section of this site.
