Applications for the Margaret B. Lee Scholarship are now being accepted. The scholarship will be awarded to a young woman who lives on Sanibel or Captiva or who has a parent who works on the islands.
Applicants may be either a graduating high school student who will attend an accredited college or university or a current student at one of these institutions. Academic achievement and financial need are considerations.
The scholarship was established by Sanibel resident Jack Lee and his daughters to honor wife and mother Margaret (Margie) B. Lee who passed away in November 2019. Margie was an active member of the Sanibel P.E.O. Morning Stars, women who remained affiliated with their northern P.E.O. chapters.
The selection of the recipient will be made by Sanibel Chapter FV of P.E.O. To apply or for more information, contact Robin Wright at 660-864-3655.
The scholarship is administered by the P.E.O. Foundation of P.E.O. International, a women’s educational philanthropic organization that grants scholarships and loans to high school graduates, graduate students and women returning to the classroom for advanced degrees or certification.
