DCDW awards scholarships to Douglas County students to continue their education by attending a community college, university, or trade school. Any resident of Douglas County attending a Douglas County high school who is in good academic standing and will graduate by the end of the current school year apply. In addition to completing the application form, applicants are required to submit an essay of up to 250 words addressing one or more tenets listed in the Democratic Credo. Scholarship winners will be selected based on the content and composition of the essay as well as a variety of other factors including academic standing, financial need, and community service/extracurricular activity participation.
Applications for the 2023 DCDW Scholarships are due by February 15, 2023. Winners will be announced in May, and they will be honored at our luncheon on June 5, 2023.
