Reuben T. Carlson Scholarship Award
In the spirit of helping young Americans use an education to develop their character and intellect, the Reuben T. Carlson Scholarship was established at The Lawrenceville School, in 1990 by Mr. Carlson's wife, Charlotte, and grandson, Melville D. Mummert '75.
The Reuben T. Carlson Scholarship is awarded to a rising Fourth Form boarding student. It recognizes those qualities that epitomize what a Lawrenceville student should be: outstanding scholarship, sterling character, inspired leadership, and inspiring kindness. This award covers a significant portion of the honoree's expenses for the remaining two years at Lawrenceville.
Students are nominated by faculty. Once nominated, they will be asked to compose an essay about the accomplishments of which they are most proud of and why these accomplishments are important to them. Nominated students will receive instructions explaining the application process during the spring term. A committee of faculty members will review all the proposals, as well as student records. Students will be notified of the results in May.
