Chamber Scholarships

 
The Lavon Area Chamber Scholarship Program was established to provide financial assistance to eligible CISD graduating high school seniors in the chamber’s service area. The program was established to assist CISD students who plan to continue their education at an accredited post-secondary educational institution following graduation. Selection criteria includes academic achievement, financial need related to school expenses, volunteer service and career plans. The program affirms the chamber’s mission of service for the enhancement of the community and each year the scholarship program awards multiple awards to qualifying CISD students.
