The Elliot Dow Memorial Scholarship fund was established in 2016 in the memory of Elliot Dow, a Lassen Community College (LCC) alumnus, to provide college scholarships and academic incentives in agricultural studies.
The recipient of the Elliot Dow Scholarship is someone who embodies the qualities and ideologies demonstrated by Elliot. He is remembered as someone who encouraged classmates to complete their studies and obtain a degree. His personal support was instrumental in motivating others when they became discouraged and questioned their ability to continue.
The endowment builds on donations already provided by Dow's friends and family but is open to donations from anyone who wishes to promote student education in agriculture science and technology, one of the leading industries of Lassen County.
