The Darien Chamber of Commerce raises money on an annual basis to award scholarships to deserving students. The first scholarship was awarded in 2007 and has grown in recent years to multiple scholarship awards.
In 2020, a total of six scholarships were awareded. Of those, four scholarships were awarded to Darien High School students. The application for these scholarships are handled and the scholars are chosen by the DHS Scholarship Awards Committee.
Two awards are available to the students that are the children of Darien Chamber Members, the employees of the Darien Chamber member or the children of DCC member employees. One of these awards is a general education award and the other is a STEM award.
These two scholarships are awarded through the Darien Chamber Charitable Foundation. Selection is based on academic excellence and involvement in the Darien community and done by a specially appointed selection committee.
The fundraising is done with contributions from DCC members and the money raised through the annual Fundraising Event. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this event has been put on hold.
The application for 2021 Scholarships is now available. Please download the form and submit the completed form and all required documentation by April 15, 2021. The application can be mailed or emailed to email@example.com.
