Application for Scholarship

Bass Smith Connection (BSC) seeks to lend “helping hands” to students of Clark County Ohio by raising funds through quarterly events, affectionately referred to as “Party with a Purpose (PWP)”. Proceeds from such events will be used for college financial assistance, including financial needs associated with athletics. BSC understands, values and supports education. We also know, as former athletes, the critical role and benefit that athletics play in the lives of student-athletes.  Our mission is to assist students with eliminating financial barriers and to provide role model/mentorship support to scholarship recipients.
