Summer Scholarships Offered From the Community Foundation

Three unique scholarships are being offered this summer by the Starke County Community Foundation with a deadline to enter of Aug. 13.

The Back Home Again in Indiana Scholarship is available for non-traditional students, including those who want to advance in their current field or re-enter the job market. Applicants for this scholarship must live in Starke County.

A second scholarship is also available for non-traditional students. The Legacy of Women Scholarship is offered exclusively to Starke County women, supporting women who are invested in their communities as well as working towards a college degree.
