2017 Scholarships

ANNOUNCING THE 2017 DAVIS ISLAND FISHING FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIPS

The Davis Island Fishing Foundation (DIFF) offers five scholarship opportunities established to honor some of its founding members. The DIFF Board of Directors allocates $2,500 annually from the fishing tournament proceeds to fund five $500 scholarships. In some years the proceeds from the fishing tournament allow us to make multiple awards in each category. These scholarships are awarded annually and applications are now being accepted. The deadline for submitting applications is May 16, 2017
