SCHOLARSHIPS
SCHOLARSHIPS FOR HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS

High school seniors who attend a Darke County high school* or are home-schooled in Darke County may submit an online application by March 31, 2020. 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 are merit-based without regard to financial need.

The Darke County Foundation uses a reimbursement method of awarding scholarships. Potential recipients will be announced at the high school graduation or awards program. Scholarship money will be disbursed following the student’s first semester (or quarter) in college, providing the student earns at least a 2.75 grade point average in that grading period. 

If you have any questions, please contact the Darke County Foundation at (937) 548-4673 or dcf@darkecountyfoundation.org.                                                                             

 

*Applicants for Pohl Transportation scholarship may attend school in Auglaize, Darke, Miami, Mercer or Shelby counties.

In 2018, the Darke County Foundation awarded $160,000 to over 100 graduates from all  Darke County high schools, including these graduates from Versailles High School. You can read about each scholarship on the List of Funds page of this website.
