A longstanding component of the DCA mission is providing college scholarships to Darien High School (DHS) graduates. If you are a current DHS student, please visit the DHS website Scholarship page. If you are a past recipient and current college student, please visit the Continuing Student Aid link below.

Celebrating our 83rd year of granting scholarships, the DCA awards at least $50,000 each year. Since its inception, the DCA scholarship program has provided over $2 million in funding to more than 1400 DHS graduates. The DCA is the largest provider of scholarships to DHS graduates — with funding for both new and returning college students — and the only DHS scholarship program offering recipients the opportunity to reapply for all four years of college.

Scholarships are based on both merit and need, and are funded by our named scholarship program, individual donations and a wide range of DCA programs. We are proud to support our students and community.
