Apply for a Scholarship


For graduating Darien High School (DHS) seniors, applications are available at the end of February each year, either in the DHS Guidance office or on the DHS website. This is a common application that is also used by other community organizations for their scholarship process. Applications are due back to DHS by the end of March. The DCA Scholarship Committee will review submitted applications, then invite students for interviews in April of each year.

Past DCA scholarship recipients currently in college may reapply using our application which is posted each spring and students will be contacted for interviews in June.

In addition to our scholarship grants, the DCA recognizes four DHS students each year, who have made significant contributions to their community during their high school years. These DCA Community Service awards, awarded to two seniors and two juniors, are made possible by a generous friend of the DCA.
