Ways We Help
For many students in Denver Public Schools, continuing their education beyond high school doesn't seem like a viable option. Most often, it's not low grades or lack of extracurricular activities keeping them from pursuing their dreams. There are thousands of passionate, intelligent, hard working individuals facing the most intimidating barrier to college of all -- they think it just isn't possible.
But the Denver Scholarship Foundation is changing that. Our unique, three-part approach is making a postsecondary degree possible for DPS students. Here's how:
- High School Future Centers provide students with personal guidance through the selection, application and financial aid processes
- Need-based Scholarships to attend any one of 39 technical schools, community college and four-year colleges and universities in Colorado
- College Success Services ensure that students enrolled in college successfully complete their course of study
Since the launch of our pilot program in 2006, we’ve seen dramatic results by surrounding students with support beginning in high school and continuing through college. Read more about our efforts, our success stories and how students are already living our shared dream.
The success of the Denver Scholarship Foundation is built on strong partnerships with Denver Public Schools, Colorado colleges and universities and other non-profit organizations who share our vision. Read how our partnerships produce results.
