Foundation scholarship helps graduate students

SYCAMORE – The DeKalb County Community Foundation is accepting applications for a scholarship that helps local high school graduates attend school after earning their bachelor’s degree.

Offered for the first time in 2012, the scholarship was developed by the Spinoso family of Sycamore when they discovered a lack of financial assistance beyond the undergraduate years. The family, which has lived in Sycamore for more than 30 years, believes continued education provides a strong foundation for future leaders.

Applicants must have graduated from a DeKalb County high school but need not presently live within the county. Applications are due June 14 in the DeKalb County Community Foundation office, 475 DeKalb Ave., Sycamore, IL 60178.

For information, visit www.dekalbccf.org or contact Becky Zantout, grants and community initiatives manager, at 815-748-5383 or becky@dekalbccf.org.
