The Lions International Trading Pin Club is now awarding four Youth Scholarships of $2,500.00 each to a graduating senior who is the child or grandchild of a Lion, Lioness Lion, Lioness, or a member of a Leo Club. The most important aspect of the Youth Scholarship Program is to help a young person pursue their education and follow their dreams. The LITPC takes great pride in fulfilling the motto of Lions Club International, "WE SERVE." During the SightFirst II Campaign, the pin traders contributed $144,000.00 to LCIF. Our Scholarship Program is another example of the pin traders' slogan, "Lions First".

Selection of the scholarship recipient is based on academic achievement, an essay stating the student's goals, a statement of reason(s) for applying, and an overview of work, community and school service, and letters of recommendation. Applications and supporting documentation are to be completed and submitted to the pin trading club scholarship chairman named below by March 1, 2023.

All graduating seniors who are the children/grandchildren of Lions members or who are members themselves of Leo Clubs are encouraged to participate in the LITPC Youth Scholarship program.

Important: Since New York usually has several applicants, all scholarship applicants from New York must submit their completed applications to PCC Jim Schiebel, Youth Scholarship Chairman, and not Lion Stephen Staudinger as stated on the Youth Scholarship application. We can only forward two applicants.
