A limited amount of funds will be available for Darien students in need of financial assistance for courses sponsored by DSS (parents should contact outside vendors for scholarship info about classes they sponsor).
FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE REQUESTS ARE ACCEPTED ON A ROLLING BASIS BEGINNING ON APRIL 1st. Families must qualify for the free/reduced lunch program in order to receive financial assistance for DSS programs. In order to apply, families should complete the registration form and medical form (found on the main page of our General Info tab) and indicate on the registration form that they are requesting a scholarship. Completed forms should be given to JoAnn Couture at 35 Leroy Avenue. If a scholarship is awarded, families will be responsible for paying $50 for an academic class and/or 50% of the tuition of an enrichment course. After an Award is made, it is the responsibility of the family to complete the registration process (by contacting the DSS Office) and pay any tuition balance PRIOR to June 1st.
The deadline to submit an application for financial assistance is May 11, 2018
*Scholarship Awards may be transferred to other DSS programs for the same student for whom the Award was made. Scholarship Awards may NOT be transferred between family members.
