As this is the year that James would have graduated from Lancaster High School, the James Metz Memorial Foundation is offering a $5,000 need-based scholarship to one graduating senior from Lancaster, Depew or St. Mary’s High School. This is a one-time non-renewable scholarship to be used at a college or university for the 2018-2019 academic year. Eligible applicants must have participated in both music and athletics in all four years of high school. The student will complete the attached application, attach a copy of his or her High School transcript and a one-page, typed essay describing his or her music and athletic participation in high school and other accomplishments.

Letters of recommendation are required from a member of both the music and athletic departments. The student need not have excelled in either activity but have put forth a concerted effort to have done his or her best.

The attached application, High School transcript, essay and two letters of recommendation are due on May 1, 2018 and should be mailed to: James Metz Memorial Scholarship c/o Lorraine Metz 3 Grace Way Lancaster, NY 14086

The Financial Aid Release Form should be mailed to the college that you will attend. That college will return it to James Metz Memorial Fund.

If you have any questions regarding this scholarship, please call Lorraine Metz at 716-523-0077.
