The Lynden Memorial Scholarship Program has been established to assist children, stepchildren and grandchildren of Lynden Family of Companies employees who plan to continue their education in college, graduate, or or vocational school programs.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.
