The David L. Hay Foundation is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit, private educational foundation that awards up to $5,000 in tuition scholarships to applicants who are:

  • Legal residents of LaPorte County, Indiana; and
  • Graduate (or pending graduate) of a four-year (bachelor’s) degree program at an accredited institution
  • Accepted/enrolled in a master’s or doctoral program at an accredited institution.

We do not discriminate based on age, race, or ethnic/national origin. Awards are for one year, but winners can re-apply for later years during the annual process.

Award winners must repay the award if they don’t use it for tuition, or don’t finish the school year due to avoidable circumstances. We choose winners based on

  • Financial need — from parent/guardian resources (or applicant’s if relevant)
  • Academic achievement — from college and graduate/professional school (if attending) records
  • Service & leadership — from high school, college, and graduate/professional school (if attending)
  • Ability & commitment — from what you have achieved while handling life’s issues

Applications must be postmarked by April 15th to be eligible for consideration. Winners are notified in mid-May; awards are presented in late May/early June.
