Using those criteria, each participating high school selects one graduating senior per year as their recipient of the J Lee Foundation Community Scholarship. Awards are made at Spring graduation.
The Community Scholarship award is $1,000, payable to an accredited four-year college or university of the recipient’s choice.
In 2013, the inaugural year of the program, Community Scholarships were awarded to seniors at Woodrow Wilson High School and Shady Spring High School.
