The Light Foundation is pleased to award two or more students from Darke County with a scholarship each year. The $1,000 scholarships are presented to high school seniors or college undergraduates in order to help them pay for their education.
Matt Light is committed to supporting students from his own hometown and high school, saying,“We have a Board for the Light Foundation that wants to make sure that we always have a focus and we maintain a really good presence here in Darke County, because of all the help that we get here to do what we do. This scholarship is really indicative of that commitment to getting involved at the local level.”
The Light Foundation board members who select the recipients take into account several factors, including academic achievement, community engagement, and job responsibility. The applications continue to showcase the strong students of Darke County and the Light Foundation is proud to support them in all of their academic endeavors.
