The John Lepping Memorial Scholarship has been designed by the Lep Foundation for Youth Education (a public charity that provides financial assistance to students residing in NY, N J or PA seeking to further their education).
The Scholarship will be awarded to qualified youngsters seeking to further their education by attending college. The amount of the scholarship is up to $5,000. At least four scholarships will be awarded in 2020.
John Lepping was extremely proud of disabled students who mustered the courage and determination to finish their college education despite their setbacks. This scholarship will help to deter the costs of college for disabled individuals who may not have the resources due to overwhelming medical costs.
