Duluth Central Sports Association Legacy Scholarship Fund

Duluth Central Sports Association Legacy Scholarship Fund

The Duluth Central Sports Association Legacy Scholarship Fund provides financial awards to graduating senior athletes of Duluth public high schools who reside in the geographic area traditionally served by Duluth Central High School. Applicants should be graduating seniors from Duluth Denfeld or Duluth East High Schools who live in the area formerly served by Central High School. In 2009, when the Duluth Public Schools approved the plan to consolidate high schools and close Duluth Central, the Duluth Central Sports Association established this scholarship to honor past athletes, coaches, athletic directors and the “Trojan Spirit” of Duluth’s then-oldest high school.
