The Darien Community Association recently awarded its 2018 scholarships to Darien High School students. Scholarships are funded by a wide range of DCA programs — from Thrift Shop to Academic Lecture Series to house rentals — and with the support of donations including scholarship sponsors listed below.

Since its inception 77 years ago, the DCA scholarship program has provided over $2 million in funding to more than 1300 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 scholarship program offering recipients the opportunity to reapply for all four years of college.
