General Information

The Tim Dwight Foundation, Inc. Scholarship Program awards scholarships to students with great potential who have overcome adversity or challenges to achieve success in their lives. In addition to academic merit and financial need, the selection committee will consider extenuating circumstances that present challenges to obtaining a college degree. Possible examples of extenuating circumstances include but are not limited to students from one-parent families; students with social, mental or physical disabilities; students from families to support; or students with long-term health issues.

The Tim Dwight Foundation, Inc. Scholarship Program is funded by the Tim Dwight Foundation, Inc., which receives its funding in part from The Tim Dwight Football Camp.

The Foundation will award a one year scholarship. This scholarship will be equally distributed during the first two semesters of the freshman year to the recipient’s university to help cover the costs of tuition, room and board.   

In no event shall the Foundation, after accounting for all other scholarships and grants received by the recipient, pay an amount to the recipient’s university in excess of the recipient’s cost of tuition, room and board. If a recipient lives off campus, the recipient must inform the Foundation and the Foundation will disburse funds directly to the student in the amount of the university’s cost of room and board.
