LCF Awards $976,008 in Scholarships

Since 1968, the Licking County Foundation has awarded thousands of scholarships to area students who want to continue their educations and pursue their dreams of having successful careers and lives. The Foundation’s Governing Committee recently approved scholarship funding in the total amount of $976,008 for 2016. Licking County Foundation’s Director, Connie Hawk said, “These scholarship awards are made possible by hundreds of generous donors who are passionate about higher education and believe the future of our community depends upon a well-educated and experienced workforce.”

$884,008 was awarded recently to nearly 300 area high school seniors, college students and adult re-entry students from 75 scholarship funds established by generous donors who have made an investment in the future of students from Licking County. The scholarship awards—ranging from $1,000 to $10,000—are in recognition of each recipient’s achievements and commitment to higher education. Scholarship recipients were selected by the Foundation’s 61-member, volunteer Scholarship Review Committee from a pool of 837 applicants who submitted 5,399 applications.

An additional $92,000 will be awarded to students attending The Ohio State University-Newark Campus and the Central Ohio Technical College from five Licking County Foundation scholarship funds: the Clarence W. and Grace Marie Feil Scholarship, the Pastorius Battat Scholarship, the James W. Pyle Memorial Scholarship, the Alethea E. and Norman R. Sleight Scholarship, and the newly-established Mike Johnson McDonald’s Scholarship. Recipients of these scholarships will be selected by the colleges following criteria established by the funds’ donors.
