Any adult woman returning to college and/or to a certification program and is pursuing a career goal is encouraged to apply for one of the several scholarships offered by the Highland Lakes Service League (HLSL). The criteria and application are available on the HLSL website at www.hlsl.org.
Since 2011, the HLSL has awarded over 66 Scholarships and a grand total of $120,350 to women determined to improve their lives through education. Last year (2022) alone, the organization gave over $21,000 in scholarships. HLSL raises money primarily through The Chuckwagon Chow Down and Auction. That money provides grants to nonprofits and scholarships for adult women. Because scholarship recipients help meet the workforce needs of our community, preference is given to those applicants interested in staying in Burnet or Llano counties.
Scholarship applications are due NO LATER than APRIL 15, 2023, and are available at www.hlsl.org under the tab “What We Do”. Students must be enrolled in an institution of higher education or a certification program at the time of application.
