D&P Hawk Scholarship Fund

The D&P Hawk Scholarship Fund

Established by David and Patricia Hawk, The D&P Hawk Scholarship Fund will provide financial assistance for higher education to students in the Lehighton Area School District in Carbon County, PA.

The scholarship shall be a one-year, non-renewable scholarship of up to $5,000 awarded annually to two qualified high school seniors, one male and one female, graduating from Lehighton Area School District.

Minimum qualifications for the scholarship include:

  • Demonstrated financial need.  A copy of the expected family contribution page of the FAFSA report must be submitted with application. The Foundation reserves the right to request the full FAFSA at their discretion.
  • A proven record of academic success with at least a 3.0 GPA cumulative average over the time period of two years prior to graduation
  • Demonstrated proficiency in science, math, or business, with the intent to pursue further education in one of these fields
  • Demonstrated work and/or volunteer history

In reviewing applications, financial need will be considered as a higher priority than GPA or volunteer history.  The Hawks both consider themselves fortunate to have received financial support for their secondary education and wish to pay it forward for current students for whom college may be a financial hardship.


Deadline to Apply: March 1, 2024

Students should pick up an application in the Lehighton guidance office.
