Scholarship funds may be used for books and tuition for applicants seeking post high school education opportunities including, but not limited to universities (Baccalaureate, Masters or Doctoral programs), community colleges and trade schools. If awarded, the scholarship will be made payable to the recipient’s school on behalf of the recipient. John W. Luttrell Scholarships may range in amount from approximately $500 to $2500 or more.
Established in 2005, the John W. Luttrell Scholarship received its initial funding from friends and family of John Luttrell who passed away that year from brain cancer. Donations were made in John’s name with the goal of assisting those whose lives had been impacted by childhood cancer seek higher education opportunities. The annual scholarships are a small reward for the strength and courage these families demonstrate in their daily lives.
