GREENVILLE– All graduating high school seniors or current college students are invited to apply for a scholarship and/or internship available through the Light Foundation in Greenville, Ohio.
If applying for the scholarship, applicants must live in Darke County or attend a Darke County school. Some of the scholarship areas considered are academic achievement, community service, job responsibility, and the content of their answers on the application. They are to be mailed to the Light Foundation and received by May 1, 2023. On hand to present the scholarships this summer will be Greenville High School alum, three-time New England Patriots Super Bowl Champion and Light Foundation co-founder, Matt Light, along with his wife and co-founder, Susie Light.
The Light Foundation’s internship application is open to anyone looking to receive college credit this summer while making a big impact on the future of youth leadership. Each selected intern’s skills, experience, and interests will be taken into consideration to determine the exact nature of duties. Applicants may send their cover letter and resume to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 1, 2023.
Matt Light notes the importance of investing in the local community and its young residents. “Both individual programs align with our mission in supporting young people and helping them reach the next step to their success. It’s important for young people to have opportunities such as these, so they can share their experiences and education with the next generation.”
The non-profit has made contributions equaling $60,000 over the years to help young people in Darke County reach the next step in their education journey. Both applications are accessible on the Light Foundation’s website, mattlight72.com.
