Information on Scholarship Program

XC and Track and Field Families,

 

One of the ways our LHS XC and Track Club supports our student athletes is by offering scholarships to graduating seniors.   We commit to two $400 scholarships each year;  However, thanks to the efforts of our volunteers and members, we have historically been able to provide additional scholarships each year.

 

The funding for these scholarships is made possible thanks to:

·       the work of our Scholarship Committee soliciting corporate sponsors

·       our membership dues

·       the many volunteers who work at our fundraisers

 

To be eligible for a scholarship, the applicant must:

·       (beginning with the 2015-16 school year) be a member of the LHS Cross Country and Track Club in each school year the athlete participates in their sport

·       have participated in a minimum of two years of Cross Country, Indoor Track, or Spring Track.  This may be two seasons in the same sport (e.g. two years of cross country), or one season in two different sports over two different years (e.g. winter track sophomore year and spring track senior year).

·       be participating in Cross Country or Track and Field in their senior year

·       be in good standing academically and going on to an accredited 2- or 4- year college

·       complete the scholarship application available to seniors through Londonderry High School

 

All currently eligible athletes are listed here, for all class years.  If you have any question about your son’s or daughter’s eligibility, please contact our Scholarship Chair, Laura Keeley, at keeley5@comcast.net

 

All eligible applicants are then evaluated for scholarship selection based on a point system.   The following points are totaled for each eligible applicant:

·       all points the applicant (and their parent/s) earned by volunteering at Track Club events throughout the applicant’s four years of high school

·       points allocated to the applicant by their coach(es)

 

After all points are totaled for all eligible applicants, all information is forwarded to an alumni selection committee who makes the final confirmation of scholarship winners.   Scholarship Winners are announced at the Baccalaureate Ceremony the night before Graduation.

 

If you have any questions on this Scholarship program, please don’t hesitate to contact our Scholarship Chair, Laura Keeley.

 

Thank you for your continued support of our Student Athletes.

President, LHS XC and Track Club
