About This Scholarship

The Decarsky Foundation was a private foundation, formed in 2007 by Tomp and Vicki Decarsky, with one of its major interests being the support of our community with educational scholarships.

The scholarship recipients may apply to the Selection Committee for annual renewal for three additional years if attending a four-year university or for one additional year if attending a community college. If the recipient graduating from a community college elects to continue his or her education at a four-year university that recipient may apply to the Selection Committee for renewal of the scholarship annually for two additional years with an annual scholarship amount of $4,000.00.
