The Darien Chamber of Commerce offers scholarships to deserving students each year. The primary source of scholarship fundraising is by the Annual Wine & Food Tasting event at BMW of Darien (scheduled October 18th, 2018) and membership renewal donations made by Darien Chamber members. The application for 2019 will be available in late winter of that year with a due date of the application and all supporting documents by April 15th, 2019. A special committee of DCC Board Members is appointed to select the recipients.
In 2018, we awarded two scholarships ($1500 each) to DHS students (chosen by DHS) and two scholarships ($1500 each) to the students of Chamber Member families, or students of employees of Chamber Members. To be eligible for a DCC Member scholarship the member (who the student is applying through) must be in good standing with the Chamber for 2019. One DCC Member scholarship is a general education scholarship and the other is a STEM scholarship. Each scholarship award is paid directly to the university the awardee is attending.
2019 APPLICATION WILL BE AVAILABLE IN LATE WINTER OF 2019.
