Scholarships

Lavaca-Navidad River Authority (LNRA) will provide scholarships for area students to further their education.  This year, LNRA will award twelve (12) one thousand dollar ($1,000) scholarships and one additional scholarship, the Kay Frels Memorial Scholarship, for two thousand dollars ($2,000).  The $1,000 scholarships will be divided equally among the three Jackson County school districts and/or areas, making $4,000 available for each district/area.  The Scholarship Committee may adjust the designation of the funds if there are not adequate number of applicants from a district/area.  The Kay Frels Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to an applicant from the Jackson County school district or area. Scholarships will be available in $500 increments per semester attended.

These scholarships are available to graduating high school seniors who are planning to enroll in an undergraduate program at a college, university or technical school and/or students who are currently enrolled at one of these institutions.
