Denver Scholarship Foundation Overview
Denver Scholarship Foundation (DSF) inspires and empowers Denver Public Schools (DPS) students to enroll in and graduate from postsecondary institutions of higher education, by providing the tools, knowledge, and financial resources essential for success.
DSF serves 21 DPS schools through 14 on-site Future Centers, and partners with 31 colleges in Colorado, including technical college, community colleges, and universities. .DSF strives to address the common barriers to college experienced by the students we serve: 1) the rising cost of college and ability to pay for it; 2) lack of understanding about the college admission and financial aid processes, and; 3) lack of guidance and support to navigate from application to program completion. Since 2006, DSF has awarded $38 million in scholarships, changing the life trajectory for 6,376 DPS graduates. Our three-part program of College Access, Scholarship, and College Success partners with students each step of the way through college graduation.
