Deadline for $5,000 Emily Dahl Foundation scholarship is March 5

Scholarship up for grabs

The deadline is drawing near for students to apply for one of the largest scholarships in the North Okanagan.

The Emily Dahl Foundation is offering a $5,000 scholarship – but applications must be in no later than March 5.

The foundation, in partnership with the Community Foundation of North Okanagan, will present the SKY Volleyball Award later this year.

The scholarship is in memory of Emily Dahl, who died in January 2019 at the age of 18.

A post on the foundation's website states the “award is for students who have been a part of SKY Volleyball and embody the leadership and compassionate characteristics demonstrated by Emily Dahl.”

The review committee makes its choice by the end of April, and students will receive their awards with all the other district awards at graduation in June.

Students can apply for the scholarship through their high school.
