The Brown County Lions Club awards college scholarships to Brown County residents. They are chosen from a deserving group of applicants, based on their service to school and community, their character, their academic ability, and the special circumstances of their lives. County residents must be a 2020 or 2021 high school graduate pursuing an academic or vocational college degree. The five, one-year awards are in the amount of $1,000 each and are provided through fund raising projects and scholarship endowments by the Brown County Lions Club.
