Scholarship

The H.U. Lee Memorial Foundation scholarship program includes two levels of awards: National and Regional. National Scholarships can range from $1,000 up to $8,000 and are paid on a semester basis. Regional Scholarships are typically one-time awards, and vary based on the funds that are raised by the licensees and students within their respective region . Students may apply for a Regional Scholarship each year during their college career. Scholarship amounts are based on the Foundation’s fundraising totals during the prior year.

National Scholarships are funded through 25% of all regional donations as well as other national fundraising initiatives. Regional Scholarships are funded through the fundraising efforts of our school owners such as Board Break-a-Thons (BBAT), tournaments, and other events. Seventy-five percent of all funds raised through these types of events are reserved for students in that region. Our Foundation staff work closely with the school owners who raise the funds to determine how the funds are awarded.
