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.


Please consider making a difference in the lives of Upper Valley soccer players who need help in order to participate by making a tax deductible donation to the Bobby Clark Scholarship Fund. Donations help pay the fees of players who otherwise could not afford to participate and play on a Lightning SC team.
