Darke County Scholarship – Apply Now!
February 26, 2021

It’s that time of year again for seniors to begin preparing their plans for after graduation. This is a huge step in young people’s lives. The Light Foundation was built to help them succeed by offering unique programs that provides them with outdoor and hands-on learning opportunities that inspire them to believe in themselves and their ability to be great leaders. Not only are we helping them down their own path toward becoming successful adults, but we are building healthy, responsible, and motivated citizens for generations to come.

In addition, each year our Foundation also offers a $1,000 scholarship to two deserving Darke County students to help them further their education. The applications are reviewed by a committee. They consider the many different aspects of each student’s high school achievements. Some of the areas considered are academic achievement, community service, job responsibility, and the content of answers on the application.

Since 2001, the Light Foundation has given out $50,000 in scholarships to the New England and Ohio areas through the Darke County Scholarship and the Dan Pires Memorial Scholarship.

The Darke County Scholarship is now open to any student that resides in Darke County or attends a Darke County school. Applications are due on May 1, 2021 and will be awarded by August 1, 2021. The applications are available at mattlight72.com!
