The Dayton Foundation has launched its 2023-2024 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 nearly 300 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 2021-2022, The Dayton Foundation and the Dayton-Montgomery County Scholarship Program, a component fund of The Dayton Foundation since 2006, awarded nearly $2.3 million in scholarships to help 1,048 students advance their educational goals.

The deadline to submit a completed ScholarshipCONNECT online application for the 2023-2024 school year is 4:00 p.m. on Friday, March 3, 2023. For more information and success stories from previous years’ scholarship recipients, visit ScholarshipCONNECT, or connect with The Dayton Foundation on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.
