Lancaster Liederkranz awards scholarships to high school seniors from Lancaster County and surrounding areas who are furthering their education in German studies. The successful candidate will be a leader and scholar who demonstrates an interest in German language and culture beyond the classroom.
Scholarships are made possible by fundraisers and donations by the Hobby Chor and Small Games of Chance.
The Scholarship Committee has named three annual scholarships in honor of these late Liederkranz member teachers who perpetuated the Club's mission of preserving German culture by offering German language classes to Club members: Helga Barisits, Monica Fasnacht, and Milan Kratzer.
