2024 Scholarship Information

Attention Class of 2024!  Apply for Esko Educational Foundations Scholarships!
Did you know since 1994, the Esko Educational Foundation (EEF) awarded 653 Lincoln High School graduating seniors 39 unique scholarships totaling over $1,291,050? 
To the Class of 2024, you are urged and invited to apply for more than 20 EEF scholarships when available.
Listed below are links to the following for you to complete:

EEF Application 2024
EEF Recommendation 2024
The scholarship application form (paper copy) is due to Gretchen Grover in the high school office by Friday, March 22nd, 2024 by 3:30pm. Print this form single sided, it is recommended you print a copy for your records.
The scholarship recommendation form (paper copy) from two references is due to Gretchen Grover by Friday, March 22nd, 2024. You are required to submit two recommendation forms one from a teacher and one from a coach, mentor or employer.
Please note: a handful of EEF scholarships list financial need as one selection criterion. If you want to apply for these scholarships (and it is recommended you do), the following document, page 1 only of the FAFSA Submission Summary, must be included in addition to the application:

FAFSA Submission Summary from FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) This report includes your SAI (Student Aid Index)
If you do not submit page 1 of the above form, you will not be in the applicant pool for only those scholarships which require the financial need criteria.
Please note: only one application form per student is necessary to be considered for all the EEF scholarships, including those scholarships requiring financial aid statements.
This information, including .pdf links to the scholarship application and recommendation forms, will be sent via email to all Class of 2024 seniors and to all Class of 2024 parents/guardians in February 2024.
In April, the EEF Board of Directors will select the scholarship recipients using an algorithm of selection criteria such as GPA, school activities, community service, recommendations, and the like.
The Class of 2024 EEF Scholarship Awards Ceremony will be held in the Lincoln High School Theater at 3:00 PM. Scholarship recipients are expected to attend. Parents, family members, and friends are invited to attend.

Attention: FAFSA Information

If you want to apply for the handful of EEF scholarships with a selection criterion of financial need (and we encourage you to do so), please note:  FAFSA data have not been readily available to students from FAFSA at this time.

Please mark  “YES” on your scholarship application page 3 Question “Some EEF scholarships are partially based on financial need.  Do you want to be considered for these Scholarships?”  Mark “yes”.  At this time due to the FAFSA IT difficulties, you are most likely unable to include your page 1 of the FAFSA Submission Summary which includes your SAI (Student Aid Index).

Do not worry—as long as your application has “yes” marked, you will be covered for requesting to be in the applicant pool for scholarships that have financial need as one of their criteria. 

Mrs. Bergstedt is you’re your best point of contact for FAFSA updates for the Class of 2024.

Again, this message is for those applicants who want to be included in the pool of scholarships that have financial need as one of their criterion.  (We encourage you to apply for these scholarships, too.)  We will keep you posted about the FAFSA situation.

Here to help when you need us.
