Our 2015 Scholarship winners,
Welcome! This is the 55th year the program is offering scholarships to
graduating high school students in the Louisville-Lafayette
communities, to assist them in funding their efforts in pursuing higher
education. Help us make this the best year ever in continuing the
tradition of supporting our students! History.
It all began in 1962
when the Lafayette High School PTA collected funds from organizations
and individuals to provide seniors with a start toward their college
education. In 1965, Louisville businesses adopted these efforts and
began to help Louisville High School seniors also. The Lafayette and
Louisville programs merged in 1972 when Centaurus High School was built. In 2001, the fund expanded to include Monarch High School. The Apple for Lawrence Enrietto Scholarship was established by the Louisville Chamber of Commerce in memory of long time Louisville resident and philanthropist Lawrence Enrietto. It is available to one Louisville resident only.
Staffed entirely by a
group of dedicated volunteers, since 1983 the program has
awarded 597 scholarships totaling more than $497,000.
Objectives of the scholarship fund are:
Recognize highly motivated high school seniors in their efforts to advance their education.
Inform the community about the goals and progress of the scholarship program and the students who benefit from it.
financial support from individuals, organizations and businesses so
that the scholarship program can continue the tradition of supporting
local graduates with college scholarships.
