Apex Lions Club announced multiple scholarships in the form of the T.B. Holland Memorial Scholarship Program 2021. They are offering $1000 scholarships to up to three students and $500 scholarships to up to three other students. These scholarships are awarded to qualified students for college tuition and paid directly to their enrolled college. The amount will be applied for the 2021-2022 tuition cost and is a one-time, non-renewable payment. The scholarship applicants will be assessed based on the quality of an essay, and the best essay would be the one that exhibits great characteristics of service to the school, community and a vision for the future. Other factors include the usual recommendation letters, GPA, volunteer service, and financial/special needs.
Scholarships can be granted to both domestic and international students. These prestigious awards can cover a part of tuition or whole tuition fees and any education-related expenses. Scholarships can boost college or university applications and also job applications as they give out the impression that the individual has high skills, achievements, and accomplishments. With the rising tuition costs, it gets difficult for students to pay for their own education, and this is where scholarships can help them complete their degree, course, or program.
Lions Clubs International, one of the world’s largest service club organizations, has many volunteers around the world. These volunteers work together to respond in the times of communities’ needs. Their mission is to empower volunteers to meet humanitarian needs, serve their communities, promote global goodwill and encourage peace. The Apex Lions Club is a part of this international organization and has provided services to the community in Apex, North Carolina. They resolve issues like providing eye exams and glasses to families in need and also collecting used eyeglasses and hearing aids to give them to the people who need them internationally. The Apex Lions Club has its own vision screening device, which helps in the early detection and treatment of vision impairments among children. They raise their revenue through various fundraising projects and support programs such as Camp Dogwood for the Blind, Diabetes Awareness, Leader Dogs, Boy Scout Troop, Boys, and Girls Home of North Carolina, Disaster Relief, Apex Police Department, Western Wake Crisis Center, and community needs.
