Welcome to the Daly Fund Research Project Blog. On this blog you’ll learn about Bernard Daly and the impact of the remarkable Daly Fund, America’s oldest place-based scholarship. Established through the estate of Bernard Daly in 1920, the Fund has made it possible for Lake County high school graduates to go to college. (Learn more about the Daly Fund here.)

Since the first scholarships were awarded in 1922, more than 2,000 Lake County high school graduates have been recipients.
