All DPS students who are planning to attend a college or other institute of higher education in the fall semester following graduation are eligible to apply. The chosen recipient(s) have the opportunity to receive up to $1,000 toward their continuing education.
Requirements: A strong candidate forthis scholarship would be a student who is goal-oriented and can describe their involvement and passion for volunteerism or serving the community. This would be reflected in the application itself as well as in two letters of reference.
Junior Welfare Association (JWA) last year gave out over $6,000 in grants to community organizations in Macon County that we believe align to our vision to improve the economic, educational, and social conditions in the Decatur area. These grants are open to any organization in Macon County that provide service and assistance to the community. The grant application can be found as a google form at the link below.
Applications will be accepted electronically per the form, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications are due by March 18th.
