Our first college scholarship was awarded in 1954 in the amount of $200. Today we give out over $150,000 each year to East Hampton High School seniors and to two women returning to college. The LVIS also donates money to schools to provide books. Recipients reside throughout the entire town and are chosen based on academic performance, essays and community service. Applications can also be picked up in the LVIS office at 95 Main Street.
