DSF to DPS students: College. It’s Possible.

Are you a high school student in a Denver Public School? Is going to college part of your Big Dream? Then you need to check out the Denver Scholarship Foundation, a Colorado non-profit organization whose mission it is to “inspire and empower Denver Public School (DPS) students to achieve their post-secondary educational goals by providing the tools, knowledge and financial resources essential for success.”  The deadline to apply for a DSF Scholarship is April 1, 2015.

Launched in 2006 by Lincoln High School graduate Tim Marquez and his wife, Bernadette, DSF has helped more than 7,200 seniors earn over $62 million in scholarships, and it has helped increase the rate at which DPS graduates enroll in college by 25 percent, from 1,230 in 2006 to 1,585 in 2010. The Denver Scholarship Foundation also awards scholarships to low- and middle-income DPS graduates attending college in Colorado. DSF counselors work in “Future Centers” housed within DPS high schools. To locate your Future Center, click here.

 The application is available here.
