The DCA is the largest provider of scholarships to Darien High School (DHS) graduates. On an annual basis, we offer funding to both new and returning college students. To date, the DCA has awarded $2 million in scholarship funds to nearly 1,300 graduates. Made possible by donations, Thrift Shop revenue and various DCA programs, scholarships are based on both merit and need.
