The Dye Foundation Scholarship
The Dye Scholarship Foundation was created to honor the memory of Jeffery Dye. Jeff was a Ventura County search and rescue volunteer who tragically lost his life while assisting in a rescue operation in 2019. Jeff started his college education later in life and built a successful career by returning to school. The Dye family decided to start this scholarship with the goal to assist people who were in similar situations as Jeff. The ideal applicants for this scholarship are older students with financial constraints, career changes, or those who have family or work responsibilities and need assistance to complete their education. To be eligible for this scholarship you should be a student who is returning to school with a desire to improve your life circumstances and be a resident from Ventura County. The foundation accepts applications on an ongoing basis and are reviewed quarterly.
