Heritage Scholars

Each year the Historical Society of East Rockaway & Lynbrook awards Heritage Scholarships.  Students apply through their Guidance Counselors at East Rockaway and Lynbrook High School.  The selection of a Junior is made by each school. These teens are introduced at our Annual Meeting in May.

Each youngster works on some aspect of local history   mutually decided by the Junior student a  member of HSERL who will work with the student so as to complete the work by the end of the Senior year.  At this time a $500 stipend is awarded.
