Lake Blue Ridge Civic Association Scholarship Fund
The Lake Blue Ridge Civic Association Scholarship Fund was established by the Association in January, 2017 and is administered by the Community Foundation of North Georgia.
The purpose of the scholarship fund is to provide financial assistance to a Fannin County High School student to further their education at an accredited university.
Initially funded with a $10,000 grant from the Association, the fund has now grown to over $20,000 in just one year allowing the scholarship to grow from $500 to $1000. The first scholarship was presented during the FCHS Scholarship Night in May of this 2017.
Chief sources of revenue for the fund are 20% of all membership dues support the fund in addition to all revenues produced by the Spring Poker Run on the Lake and the Lighted Boat Parade typically held around the July 4th holiday.
The scholarship selection committee consist of three members of the Association’s Board; a representative from the Community Foundation of North Georgia and the Senior Guidance Counselor from Fannin County High School.
