Denver Scholarship Foundation (DSF) is a nonprofit helping to make college possible and building the educational and economic future of Denver by collaborating with Denver Public Schools (DPS) high school students, families, and partners statewide to increase access and completion of post-high school learning, while also expanding generational exposure to career and entrepreneurial opportunities.
Your support of Denver Scholarship Foundation (DSF) helps make college possible for Denver students like Maritza Medina. Maritza was first introduced to DSF through the DSF Future Center located inside her high school, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Early College. There she was connected to her DSF College Advisor Derrek Sandoval, a former DSF Scholar himself, who helped her see the possibility of college by assisting with admissions questions, college essays, and scholarship applications.
Once on Auraria campus attending Community College of Denver, Maritza was paired with DSF Campus Advisor Cynthia Gallegos. Their relationship created a critical support system that helped to ensure that Maritza would graduate. All of this was undergirded by the DSF Scholarship that Maritza received each year.
Whether pursuing higher education at Community College of Denver like Maritza, or at any of Denver Scholarship Foundation’s other 30 college partners across the state, DSF Scholars rely on community members like you for the scholarships and wrap-around services DSF provides. Your gift today to DSF helps provide those services, opens doors, and broadens horizons for DSF Scholars.
