About the Scholarship / How to Apply

The Jared Matthew Lamy Memorial LIFE Scholarship is dedicated to encouraging kindness to self and others especially in handling situations in the presence of alcohol. It is a talking point trigger to get young people thinking about how to handle situations where a friend has had too much to drink. A plan to not leave that person alone and a plan to protect them from the possible dangers such as suicide that certain blood alcohol levels can result in harming themselves…permanently.

The scholarship recipient will receive a one-time award of $500 to go towards furthering his/her education and life.

    “Every day, think as you wake up, today I am fortunate to be alive, I have a precious human life, I am not going to waste it. I am going to use all my energies to develop myself, to expand my heart out to others; to achieve enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. I am going to have kind thoughts towards others, I am not going to get angry or think badly about others. I am going to benefit others as much as I can.”
