Apply Today: Doris Burkett Scholarship

The Lexington Chamber & Visitor Center is proud to continue providing the Doris Burkett Scholarship.

This year we will be using proceeds from the inaugural Dining on the Dam to provide one $5,000 scholarship to a student from each high school in Lexington County School District One. This opportunity is available to students who will be attending either a four year college/university or a technical college.

This is a needs-based scholarship with emphasis placed on moral integrity and the potential of the individual to become a productive citizen. The Doris Burkett Scholarship is for the “underdog” who needs a little help to reach success and who may be overlooked for scholarships from other organizations.To be eligible for this scholarship, students do not need to qualify for the Life Scholarship or Hope Scholarship but have potential and desire to further their education.

The applications must be returned to the Chamber office no later than Friday, May 8.

By Mail: P.O. Box 44 Lexington, SC 29071;

Drop Off Location: 311 West Main Street, Lexington, SC 29072.

After the Scholarship Selection Committee reviews the applications, the scholarship winner will be notified.

Please contact your school’s guidance counselor if you have any questions.
