DCU Scholarship

DCU recognizes the lifetime value of a college education. The DCU Memorial Scholarship Program was designed to assist outstanding students with the cost of this education. We want to recognize your hard work and promote your goals, too. Beginning in November of 2020, students in their senior year of high school who would be attending a state or nationally accredited college or university in the fall of 2021 were able to apply for the Annual DCU Memorial Scholarship Program.* Scholarships were awarded on academic merit, teachers’ references, an original essay, awards and recognition, and extracurricular and community service activities. An impartial panel of college educators judged the participants’ entries. In 2021, DCU awarded $190,000 in Scholarships and all funds were distributed through the DCU for Kids Foundation.
