M. PAUL AND JANICE LEBLANC MEMORIAL FUND
The M. Paul and Janice LeBlanc Memorial Scholarship was established in January of 2001 by The LeBlanc Family through the Baton Rouge Area Foundation.
Scholarships are made available to high school graduates who reside in areas where LeBlanc stores are located. These areas include Ascension Parish, Assumption Parish, East Baton Rouge Parish, Iberville Parish and Tangipahoa Parish. Students must attend an accredited Louisiana university or college, demonstrate leadership, community service and extracurricular activities. Preference will be given to applicants who have worked for a LeBlanc grocery store for at least six months prior to applying.
The Fund will make available up to six one-time scholarships in the amount of $500 to qualified candidates. The scholarship award is to be used toward the following, in order of priority: tuition and fees; room and board; books and supplies; and commuting expenses. The recipients are to be selected by a Scholarship Advisory Committee.
In completing the common online application, applicants must submit the following:
- Academic resume
- Personal statement or essay

Applications must be submitted by April 30.
All applicants will be notified of the committee’s decisions within two months of the due date.
