lakewood chamber of commerce scholarship program
With your support, we support local students
The Lakewood Chamber of Commerce scholarship program, funded in part with event sponsorship dollars and proceeds from The Taste of Lakewood, awards scholarships each year to four high school seniors from either Lakewood High School or St. Edward High School. We are already looking ahead to 2020, when new recipients will be recognized on stage during the Taste of Lakewood.
Awards are given to those who best demonstrate exceptional dedication to their studies, extra-curricular activities, and, just as importantly, a commitment to working at a part-time or full-time job during their high school years.
Over the past seventeen years, more than seventy college bound seniors received assistance with their college tuition. In 2017 and 2018 the Taste of Lakewood was honored as a finalist for Best Charitable Event in Cleveland Magazine’s Best of the West competition.

Investing in the future
“In 2007 I received the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce scholarship. This support from my community and scholarship helped me finance my degree and the expenses that go along with it. I continued on to graduate from Ohio University with a degree in Outdoor Recreation and Education with a certificate in Environmental Studies. After graduation I travelled and lived all over the United States. For the past year I have been in the White Mountains of New Hampshire utilizing my degree by teaching Environmental Education to children during the school year and leading backpacking and canoe expeditions for teenagers in the summer months. Although I am away, Lakewood will always be home and I appreciate how supportive the community is.” — Jenny Young
The Lakewood Chamber of Commerce’s goal is to invest in Lakewood’s future through supporting our working youth. We realize that a student’s work ethic and the unique experiences that come from employment, are important indicators of their future success.
