Lila Draper Burton Scholarship


The Lila Draper Burton Scholarship Trust Fund was established as a result of bequest by Lila Draper Burton, a Waukesha County resident, indicating her faith in the young people of Waukesha County and her belief in the value of an education.

Consideration will be given to all scholarship applicants based upon:

1. Scholarship achievement
