The Delaware Community Foundation (DCF) has awarded $306,800 in scholarships for the 2020-21 school year, helping 165 students throughout the state pursue secondary education.
Each year, the DCF awards scholarships to students from funds established by generous people who care about education and understand that it can be costly. This year, 165 new and renewed scholarships from over 50 different funds were awarded to these students.
There is no cap on the number of scholarships or the amount students may receive. Funding from many of the scholarships may be applied to the costs of textbooks and fees, in addition to tuition. Some are one-time awards, and others are renewable.
“Many of our donors who care about education choose to create scholarship funds to build opportunities for students where they otherwise may not exist,” DCF President and CEO Stuart Comstock-Gay said. “Our goal is to help philanthropists who care about education support young people working toward building successful futures.”
