DCEF Scholarship Reception

DCEF Awards Scholarships to DCSS Seniors
Posted on 04/01/2022
Proud parents and students came out to the Douglas County Central Office on March 30, as the Douglas County Education Foundation (DCEF) held its annual scholarship reception. 

Thanks to the Foundation and its many generous donors, 28 seniors throughout the school system were awarded over $68,000 in college scholarships to continue their education. 

DCEF has also partnered with former Atlanta Hawks player Mario West to administer his Defend the Dream Scholarship to Douglas County High School seniors.  

To receive a scholarship, students filled out applications that opened at the start of the new year. Once submitted, the applications were read by donors and other reviewers, who then notified the winners. 

DCEF Board Members
Many of the scholarships are renewable, meaning that students will receive awarded funding each semester or year that they are in school, to assist them in achieving their academic dreams. 

Congratulations to each 2022-2023 DCEF Scholarship recipient!
