The Jane Lyons Memorial Scholarship for young women has been established within the Rockford Park District Foundation to assist girls who are pursuing an undergraduate degree and who have demonstrated that they enjoy playing golf. The recipient does not have to participate on a college golf team to be eligible for this scholarship.

One $2,500 scholarship will be provided annually, and will be renewable for up to an additional three years for a cumulative total of $10,000 provided the recipient meets the required criteria for renewal.
