Each spring, the Junior League of Lansing accepts applications for its scholarship program to recognize women with outstanding commitment to their community and voluntarism.
For the next academic year, the Junior League of Lansing will be providing two scholarships in the amount of $1,000 each to two outstanding men or women in the Greater Lansing Area.
