Scholarship Day

At Defiance College, we've reserved two full-tuition Presidential Scholarships and five full-tuition Trustee STEM Scholarships for our highest achieving students! Admitted students are selected for this prestigious event based on their academic achievements, experience outside the classroom, and service to the community. It is our commitment to make DC an affordable option for all students so, at a minimum, those who attend the competition will be awarded a $1000 Defiance Scholars Award. We hope you and your family can join us on either January 19 or February 16, 2019!
