Counselors are encouraged to assist in the identification of deserve students for the Colleyville Lions Scholarships. While academics are one of the considerations for a scholarship, other attributes included need, character and presentation carry significant weight with the Scholarship Committee.

Interviews of eligible candidates will be held on a Saturday (To be announced) in late April or early May in Colleyville. Candidates will be contacted with the location and interview time. Interviews will typically last 30 minutes. Recipients will be notified within 72 hours.

A Certificate will be presented at a regularly scheduled Colleyville Lions Club meeting.
