SCHOLARSHIPS FOR HIGH SCHOOL CLASS OF 2024
High School Application

High school seniors who attend a Darke County high school or are home-schooled in Darke County may apply for Darke County Foundation scholarships. (Pohl Transportation applicants see exception below.*) Applications are available Feb. 15, 2024, and due March 31, 2024.

Scholarships are available to students pursuing 4-year or 2-year degrees, or shorter vocational certificates.

One application allows you to be considered for all categories of scholarships. Awards are based on the following criteria (not necessarily in this order): grade point average, ACT score, activities, essay and financial need. Some awards do not require ACT score. Some awards are merit-based without regard to financial need.

Scholarship recipients will be notified in May 2024. Scholarship money will be disbursed following the student’s first grading period in college, providing the student earns at least a 2.75 grade point average in that period. 

For questions, contact the Darke County Foundation at dcf@darkecountyfoundation.org

or (937) 548-4673.
