Lemons (Lawrence and Pauline) Scholarship

For Scotts Bluff County graduate under age 30

Two separate four-year scholarships will be given annually to Scotts Bluff County graduates under 30 years of age. Preference will be given to lineal descendants of Harry and Mabel Wisner and Guy and Florence Lemons (lineal descendants are not required to be Scotts Bluff County graduates) if such descendants meet all other criteria for eligibility. Winners and alternates will be selected.


The $1,000 per year ($500 paid per semester) scholarships are renewable for up to four years. Deadline for application and supporting documents is February 15th. Recipients will be announced in May.
To qualify for the Lawrence and Pauline Lemons Scholarship, students must:

  • Be enrolled full-time at an accredited college, university or vocational or technical school

  • Carry a minimum of 12 hours

  • Maintain a “B” average or 3.0 GPA

Scholarships are paid directly to the school. In the case of overseas students, special arrangements may be necessary. Recipients are responsible for forwarding college transcript to OTCF within three (3) weeks of the end of each grading period. Failure to send transcripts jeopardizes scholarship renewal.


If scholarship recipients or their parent(s) move to new address, notification [including new address(es) and phone number(s)] must be given to the Oregon Trail Community Foundation. OTCF must also be notified if recipient transfers to a different college.


The scholarship will be rescinded and awarded to the alternate if the recipient does not enroll as a full-time student for the first semester for which the scholarship is awarded.
