The Steinman Foundation awarded three area high school and college students with the James Hale Steinman Memorial Scholarship virtually on May 25. The scholarship provides educational funding to students pursuing secondary education, and recognizes their academic achievements and community service honors.
The Steinman Foundation provides funding of up to $30,000 for each scholarship, which are typically awarded to graduating high school seniors. However, the program expanded this year to allow past applicants still working toward their degrees to apply.
The program celebrates the memory and accomplishments of James Hale Steinman, the former president and co-publisher of Lancaster Newspapers, Inc. Children of Steinman Communications employees are eligible for these scholarships.
