Lunch Pail Defense Scholarship Foundation

Coach Bud Foster, has combined his coined symbol, the Lunch Pail, and his personal notoriety, to create an amazing community scholarship.

The Lunch Pail Defense Foundation is a non-profit corporation (per IRS Code Section 501(c)(3)) whose purpose is to fund an academic scholarship (or scholarships) for an eligible high school student (or students) from the New River or Roanoke Valley areas.

The LPD scholarship recipient will embody the characteristics symbolized by the Lunch Pail in terms of spirit, character, work ethic and determination to succeed in all areas of life.

All applications will be reviewed by a selection committee and, the scholarship monies awarded may be used for any college or university.
