The Lincoln Community Foundation administers the Helen Roeske Financial Assistance Fund to help LPS high school students who attended Hartley Elementary. Eligible students must have attended Hartley Elementary (no minimum years required, just attendance) and be at risk of dropping out of high school because of family financial circumstances. There is approximately $425.00 available from this fund for the 2016-17 school year to help a student remain in school.
The deadline for nominations is October 31, 2016. The Lincoln Community Foundation will select a recipient by November 15, and will inform the student and his/her counselor. The grant will be made to the Foundation for Lincoln Public Schools and instructions for accessing the funds will be sent to the chosen student and his/her counselor.
