DAYTON — The Dayton Foundation has launched its 2016-2017 scholarship application process and is pleased to once again offer students access to ScholarshipCONNECT, an online scholarship search and college readiness resource. Students can access ScholarshipCONNECT by visiting www.daytonfoundation.org/scholars.
ScholarshipCONNECT offers over 130 scholarship opportunities through The Dayton Foundation and educational foundations that are part of the Foundation. The system uses a detailed questionnaire to match students, based upon their educational interests and background, to possible scholarship opportunities. Students and parents also can help plan and pay for college by accessing links to online financial aid, scholarship and loan resources, and tools, such as a college debt calculator.
In fiscal year 2014-2015, The Dayton Foundation and the Dayton-Montgomery County Scholarship Program, a component fund of The Dayton Foundation since 2006, have awarded more than $1.4 million in scholarships to help nearly 1,400 students advance their educational goals.
The deadline to submit a completed ScholarshipCONNECT online application for scholarships for the 2016-2017 school year is March 13, 2016. For more information and success stories from previous years’ scholarship recipients, visit ScholarshipCONNECT, or connect with The Dayton Foundation on Facebook and Twitter.
