The LP Scholarship Program recognizes the accomplishments of LP team members' children who excel in their studies and make positive contributions to their communities.
"LP's scholarship allows me, an aspiring educator, to go to school so I can enrich, inspire and teach the next generation," said first-year scholarship recipient and Clarks Summit University freshman Caleb Morgan, son of LP Area HR Manager Jenny Morgan. "When LP offered my mother a job, it opened the door to many opportunities, and I am proud to be a product of LP. I may not be employed by the company, but its impact on my life is indescribable. I'm overflowing with joy to be a recipient of this scholarship."
For the 2023–2024 academic year, more than 20 first-time recipients and nearly 40 renewal recipients received LP scholarships. Recipients are awarded up to $6,000 for four years of full-time undergraduate study or until they complete their academic program—whichever comes first.
"It feels amazing to receive this scholarship because it shows that a company like LP supports the community and the families of its team members," said first-year scholarship recipient and University of Saskatchewan freshman Dominique LeBlanc, daughter of LP Swan Valley Forester Paul LeBlanc. "I'm proud that my dad works for LP, and I am very grateful that I was chosen for this scholarship."
Since 2001, LP has provided more than $2.2 million in scholarships to help nearly 450 students complete their undergraduate college or vocational education.
"Our team members are at the center of everything we do and by supporting them and their families, we are Building a Better World™," said LP Chair and CEO Brad Southern. "Through the LP Scholarship Program, we are not only preparing the leaders of tomorrow but also giving back to our team members of today. We are proud of the work this year's scholarship recipients have done in the classroom and in their communities, and we look forward to supporting them as they continue their academic journeys."
The LP Scholarship Program is administered by Scholarship America. Submissions are evaluated based on each student's academic record, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, honors, work experience, statement of goals and aspirations, personal or family difficulties, and an outside appraisal. For a student to be awarded a scholarship, their financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated.
