LHSAA Scholarships & Awards

Posted: 04-05-2013 | Categories: Parents & Students

The Louisiana High School Athletic Association (LHSAA) continues its tradition of steering our state’s student- athletes toward a college education by awarding numerous scholarships to deserving individuals. Those student-athletes who combine community service, academic achievement and on-field success make up the award recipients each year, and the awards they receive are products of the generosity of our organization’s corporate sponsors and partners.
With the help of our valued partners, there are 24 scholarships available this year valued at a combined total of $31,000. The list of this year’s scholarship sponsors are below along with the awards they are offering to our student-athletes.

One student-athlete is chosen from each of the following sports to receive a $1,000 scholarship, in addition to one male and female recipient selected at-large: girls’ and boys’ basketball, girls’ and boys’ track-and-field, baseball, softball, football and volleyball. The at large category includes other LHSAA sanctioned sports that are not previously listed. Students must earn a 3.5 GPA through seven semesters and be exemplary in community service, school activities and leadership.
