The Greater Quad Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce proudly announces the Paul Lensmeyer Future Leaders Scholarship. The scholarship is made possible by a generous donation from Ascentra Credit Union to honor the legacy of their late CEO Paul Lensmeyer who created opportunities for Hispanic members and staff during his time at the credit union.
The scholarship provides one $1,000 award to any dependents or employees of any Greater Quad Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce member. The scholarship is open to any students looking to working with or to advance the Hispanic community and will be entering an accredited undergraduate, graduate or vocational program.
“The Greater Quad Cities Hispanic Chamber of Commerce would like to thank Ascentra Credit Union and the late Paul Lensmeyer for their commitment to the empowerment of Hispanic youth in our community.” Says Lee Vasquez, Exceutive Director of the Greater QC Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. “The Paul Lensmeyer Future Leaders Scholarship seeks to enhance opportunities for students as they continue with their educational endeavors.”
The scholarship entrants will be judged on a 500 word essay on the topic, “How do you plan on using your education to improve your community?”
The GQCHCC’s scholarship program is designed to offer students opportunities at a variety of educational institutions from community college to graduate level programs to trades schools. The goal is to invest in the future of the community by preparing aspiring professionals and entrepreneurs for the challenges of the future economy.
