H.S. and Angeline Lewis Scholarships

Description

The H.S. and Angeline Lewis Scholarships were made available to the Auxiliary through the generosity of one of our deceased members, Angeline Lewis, a member of Unit 214, Darlington. Mrs. Lewis bequeathed her estate to our organization for the establishment of a fund to be utilized annually for a scholarship program for deserving applicants. Six awards are available, one is for graduate students. Applicants must be a child, grandchild, great-grandchild, stepchild, step grandchild, step great-grandchild, wife or widow of an honorably discharged American veteran. Students may apply regardless of when the veteran served. An applicant who is a member of the Wisconsin American Legion Family does not need to reside in Wisconsin. The school the applicant selected need not be in Wisconsin but must be an accredited school. At least three letters of recommendation from at least two of the following categories are required: (A) School administrators, guidance counselors, faculty members; (B) Pastor, businessmen from community; (C) Representative citizen. Letters of recommendation from relatives are not acceptable. Please visit the scholarship's website or contact the American Legion Auxiliary Department of Wisconsin for more information.
