The Dieterich Education Fund was created in 2007 to provide all Dieterich graduating seniors (who meet the requirements). Seniors must be a resident of the Dieterich Community Unit #30 School District (DCUSD), attend eight consecutive years of school at DCUSD, attending a post secondary school that receives state or federal funding, must maintain a minimum of a “C” average, and must be enrolled as a full time student. Graduating seniors of DCUSD who are receiving a full ride to the college of their choice are ineligible for this scholarship.
