We are looking for ways to improve our lake, fishery, club and community.  Since 1948, Lake Pend Oreille anglers have been supporters of the LPOIC and its activities. We value giving back to our community and to the families who help to make our area a great place to live, work and play. Since 2018 the LPOIC has awarded up to eight $500.00 scholarships to graduating seniors from the Lake Pend Oreille School District.  Last year the Lakeland School District was included. With expanded funding, the LPOIC can offer larger scholarships awards for $750 each. 
 
If you have a son, daughter or grandchild interested in advancing their education in one of the selection criteria areas, the application package is available on our website or it can be sent to you if requested. 
 
These scholarships are given out each spring, so our funding drive is in full swing now.  If you are interested in helping us meet our goals, you can make an online donation at lpoic.org or contact a board member at lakepoic@gmail.com for more information. Donations can also be sent to Lake Pend Oreille Idaho Club, P.O. Box 1589, Sandpoint Idaho, 83864.  
Thank you to all who have already donated and to others considering a donation. The investment we make today can make a difference in a student’s future.
 
With appreciation,  
 
The LPOIC Scholarship Committee,
