About the Bobby Clark Scholarship Fund
The Bobby Clark Scholarship Fund was established in the spring of 1994 as a tribute to Bobby B. Clark, former Dartmouth College Men's Head Coach. Coach Clark was instrumental in the creation of the Lightning Soccer Club during his nine-year tenure at the College (1985-1993). His enthusiasm for the game of soccer and his kindness and generosity toward the children of the Upper Valley exemplifies the spirit of giving and love of soccer on which the Lightning program is based.
The LSC Board of Directors is committed to making the Lightning experience broadly available to qualified, committed soccer players who wish to participate. The Board of Directors fund raise and collect donations for the Bobby Clark Scholarship Fund, which enables the Scholarship Committee to review applications and grant awards. Because the Scholarship Committee receives many requests and has limited funding available, scholarships are granted to the most qualified applicants based on financial need and the player’s commitment to LSC.
