Scholarships Available from Darke County Foundation

Seniors from the class of 2016 who live in Darke County and attend a Darke County high school or are home-schooled may apply for scholarships from the Darke County Foundation (formerly HOPE Foundation). Application deadline is April 1, 2016. Students who are planning to attend a 2-year vocational program or 4-year college are eligible to apply. By filling out one general application, students are eligible for approximately 75 scholarships totaling $120,000.

Students may download the application from the Darke County Foundation website, www.darkecountyfoundation.org, or see their high school guidance counselor. Awards are based on the following criteria, not necessarily in this order: grade point average, ACT score, activities, financial need, and essay. Provisional recipients will be announced at each high school’s graduation. Scholarship money will be disbursed following the student’s first semester in college, providing the student earns at least a 2.75 grade point average.

Since 1986, the Darke County Foundation has awarded over $1.1 million to Darke County students. The Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for Darke County residents by receiving, managing and distributing charitable gifts. For more information, call (937) 548-4673 or visit www.darkecountyfoundation.org.
