Scholarship Fund Established to Support First Generation Cameroonian Youth

Over twenty years ago, the Cameroonians of Lowell Association (CAMOLA) was started with the hopes of bringing together all Lowell residents of Cameroonian descent to share their cultural heritage through engagement in cultural, economic, and community plans. Over the past two decades, this motivated group has been able to support community improvement efforts in Lowell and Cameroon: CAMOLA has supported the Merrimack Valley Food Bank's annual food drive, as well as an orphanage in Africa.Camola picture at lowell city hall Recently, CAMOLA established its first scholarship fund to support Cameroonian-American Lowell High School graduates in pursuing a higher education. Students must demonstrate a commitment to high academic standards, community service, and volunteerism. This is one of many LHS scholarships honoring cultural heritage that is administered by the Greater Lowell Community Foundation. CAMOLA fundraised for nearly 3 years to create a scholarship fund that could support future generations of students with a Cameroonian or other sub-Saharan African background. To grow the fund, CAMOLA rode in the GLCF's River Ride Bike-a-Thon on September 27th. Learn more about GLCF scholarship funds
