The Annual Scholarship Program

For over 20 years, DCU has provided a scholarship program designed to assist students in the pursuit of a higher education with $1,184,000 in scholarships being awarded.

This year, DCU for Kids awarded 90 scholarships totaling $165,000 to graduating high school seniors judged most likely to excel at a college or university.

Recipients are chosen by an impartial panel of college educators who base their decisions on scholastic achievement, community involvement, leadership skills, character and integrity, recommendation letters, as well as an essay submitted by the student.

The Annual Scholarship Program will accept applications starting in early December of 2020 for the 2021 application process.

Please visit this page in mid-November of 2020 for Official Rules and FAQ’s.
