Each year, LMSC awards three scholarship awards to current or former LMSC members who will be attending college during the fall. The awards are open to
people who played in the club, served as referees or served as field crew workers.
This award goes to two LMSC people who will be entering their freshman year in college. Each winner receives a $2500 scholarship. The award
