More Light! Scholarships ($1,000 to $7,000 per year)
"Light! More Light!"
These words, found on the Lawrence University seal, are believed to be the last uttered by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, the German writer and scientist (1749-1832). A generous interpretation of the phrase illustrates our belief that all Lawrentians, when they employ their talents to the fullest, can bring light—more light—to the world.
In the same spirit, More Light! Scholarships recognize Lawrence applicants who have employed their talents to the fullest to bring light to their communities through significant service or leadership (or both)—be it through individual initiative, school-based activities, and community-based or other organizations.
