Lake Hopatcong Foundation Scholarships

The Lake Hopatcong Foundation offers two $1,000 scholarships annually, each awarded in two possible categories which relate to the work of the Lake Hopatcong Foundation and its mission. The scholarships are one-time gifts, given to a senior in high school who is a resident (year-round or seasonal) of one of the four towns that surround Lake Hopatcong and has been accepted to an accredited college, university, or trade school. Since 2015, LHF has awarded $6,000 to six high school seniors, investing not only in our youth’s education, but also in the future of Lake Hopatcong and other valuable freshwater resources.

The Lake Experience
